Student Leadership


Girls in our Sixth Form are important role models to their younger peers. Every member of the Sixth Form is given the opportunity to hold a position of responsibility enabling them to develop leadership and managerial skills and to contribute directly and significantly to the development of the school community beginning in the autumn term as a sixth form prefect. 

A busy Student Leadership Team, headed by the Head Girls and their deputies, has a whole school remit, working on events and collaborating on the strategic direction of the school with senior staff. Their duties involve speaking at events such as Open Day and Prize Giving, attending School Council and organising and overseeing the Prefect teams.  They will meet regularly with the Head teacher and Director of Sixth Form.  The Sports and Arts Captains work closely with the Heads of Departments to promote these fields throughout the school and to celebrate sporting and artistic achievements.

Our vibrant House system is headed by a team of 16 sixth form students who are appointed in the spring term of Year 12. They work tirelessly to ensure the smooth running of house competitions across the school as well as lead House assemblies.

Members of the Sixth Form Committee are appointed by the sixth form student body and undertake a number of roles including being a Tutor Group Mentor. In addition, members of the committee are responsible for planning and organising the Year 13 Leavers’ Ball as well as creating the Leavers’ Book.

Sixth Form Tutor Representatives are responsible for working with the Student Leadership Team to discuss and help implement initiatives. They also represent the Sixth Form at whole school council meetings.

The annual publication from the SCHMAG team, written and edited by girls, is always eagerly anticipated across the school. In fact, there is not an area of school life where senior student leaders are not actively involved in innovating and impacting on the future of Nonsuch. We could not be in better hands.

Clubs and Societies

In addition to the leadership opportunities outlined above, sixth form students are encouraged to attend and indeed run clubs and societies as well as promote them throughout school. And what is really exciting is that if you want to set up a society that doesn’t exist, we will actively support you to do this. Examples of clubs and societies available to students include:

  • Astronomy Club
  • Conservation Club
  • Christian Union
  • Debating Club
  • Feminism Society
  • Medics Society
  • Philosophy Society
  • Stem Club
  • The Literary Review

Individuals may also be approached by Heads of Department and asked if they would be willing to act as subject mentors for students lower down the school.
