Student Leadership


Sixth Formers are involved in decision making at every level – they lead their own
learning and they learn to lead others, too.


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 to the development of the school community. Senior student leaders are actively involved in every area of school life at Nonsuch, making a difference by innovating and implementing changes that benefit all our students.





Who they are and what they do

   ♦    Head Girl Team  

SLT - Head Girl Team 2020

As members of the head girl team we have the opportunity to contribute to whole school change as well as develop our own interpersonal skills.  We are able to implement new initiatives with the support of Ms Cavilla and the Sixth Form Team, and facilitate a discussion between the student body and the staff.   Though each member of the team has their own goals that they are able to develop, we work together on essential life skills such as confidence, organisation and responsibility.  This year our team are going to focus on raising the presence of school council within the school, alongside raising awareness about student wellbeing and active citizenship.  We are a close-knit team dedicated to ensuring that all students excel both socially and academically during their time at Nonsuch.



   ♦    Arts Team  

Arts Team - March 2020

As the Arts Team, we work around the school to promote the arts through various events and to inspire students to get involved in unique ways.  We aim to raise the profile of the arts as well as make students aware of all the opportunities available for them, whether as a career or as a hobby; the arts are an enjoyable creative outlet as well as being integral in forming meaningful connections.  During our time in post, we have thoroughly enjoyed helping out with events such as Year 7 and Year 12 induction day.  We are looking forward to continuing "The Review", running a Textiles fashion show, launching new KS4 art clubs as well as incorporating more of an artistic approach to healthy mental wellbeing through the formation of relaxing art sessions.



   ♦    Sports Team  

6th - Sports Team 2019 - PageAs the Sports Team this year, we have focused on increasing participation and unity within school sport.  We meet weekly as a team, which has helped us to successfully raise £270 in Sport Relief Week, write and present the annual gym and dance display and sports awards evenings and help organise sports day last summer.  Being a part of the team has improved our team-work and creativity greatly through updating the Nonsuchpe Instagram and sports boards around school.  We have thoroughly enjoyed our time in post so far and cannot wait to continue supporting the sport at school as much as we can!



   ♦    STEM Team  

As the STEM team this year, we are all very passionate about promoting participation and interest in STEM, especially beyond the curriculum. During our time in post, we will focus on starting a half-termly newsletter and wider reading blog, as well as running STEM week and starting and promoting STEM-related clubs. We hope that working as a team to achieve our goals will enable us to develop our team work, communication and organisational skills, all of which will be invaluable to us later in life.

   ♦    House Officials  

As house officials, our main role is overlooking all the house competitions and events that take place within the school. As well as organising the events, we promote them and encourage everyone to get involved, participate and share our enthusiasm for the house system as a whole. This year our main goal is to include more house events for the sixth form, as well as further developing and improving existing competitions.

   ♦    Sixth Form Committee  

As the elected voices for the Sixth Form, we are keen advocates for embracing opportunity and tapping into ambition. In an age where female empowerment is mandatory to shape the next generation of leaders, we are so grateful to be able to be involved in the development and wellbeing of Nonsuch’s aspiring student body.

On top of representing the Sixth Form body and being excellent role models for the lower school, the Sixth Form Committee takes responsibility for organising the greatest memories of a Nonsuch student’s lifetime – such as May Ball – and solidifying these memories into beautiful yearbooks by orchestrating large-scale and innovative fundraising campaigns.
