• 6th - Student Leadership Team 2018

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  
   

6th - Head Girls

As members of the Head Girl Team, we have had the opportunity to contribute to whole school change as well as develop our own interpersonal skills.  We are able to implement new initiatives at Nonsuch, with the support of Ms Cavilla and the Sixth Form Team, whilst being treated as adults and being seen as role models for students in lower years.  Through our roles, we have learnt that our ideas are respected and we have gained a level of confidence from this. Our main priorities this year are organising Raise and Give Week (March 2018) in order to promote Active Citizenship; as well as working closely with the other schools in the Girls' Learning Trust and ensuring each school benefits from all that the Trust can offer.

 

 

   ♦    Arts Team  
   

As the Arts Team, we work around the school to promote the arts through various events and to inspire
6th - Arts Team 2018students 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 as well as designing the Little Miss Nonsuch characters which serve to celebrate commitment and endeavour in A level subjects.  We are looking forward to launching our artwork of the month programme, running drama inter-house and helping organise the RAG variety show.

 

 

   ♦    Sports Team  
   

As 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  
   

6th - Stem Team 2018Our main aim is to involve the students of Nonsuch in more STEM subjects and activities.  So far this year we have really enjoyed arranging and helping out at a variety of events including a talk from an external speaker about her varied profession as a vet which was attended by many students across a range of year groups.  Our most exciting project for the year is organising our school’s STEM week where we will organise a number of different activities to inspire the students of Nonsuch to consider pursuing a STEM-based career including competitions and talks given by a variety of external speakers. We are all looking forward to this and hope it will spark an interest in students across all year groups and help them to see the many exciting applications the STEM subjects have in the world around us.

 

   

   ♦    Sixth Form Committee  
   

6th - Sixth Form CommitteeAs 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.
