Student Leadership

Student Leadership at Millthorpe
Every student at Millthorpe has the potential to be a leader. Every student at Millthorpe shapes their own school experience.

Millthorpe’s Student Leadership Programme encourages our students to realise their potential by offering the opportunities to develop and hone the skills utilised by outstanding leaders, such as independence, self-confidence, perseverance, communication, and organisation. These skills are a huge part of the Going for Gold learning conduct at Millthorpe and are vital at school, in the workplace and in further education.

The programme encourages, recognises and celebrates our student’s achievements, allowing our students to take ownership by investing and participating in their school.

There are many ways for students to become involved in Student Leadership. Students can consider roles as Students Leaders, School Councillors and Form Representatives, Peer Mentors, Mental Health Champions, Sports Leaders, Student Librarians (LAUGH) and Paired Readers.

Student Leadership at Millthorpe is supportive and inclusive. Every student has the potential to be a leader.

Millthorpe Student Council is an elected group of active and passionate students that work together as a team to help improve our school community. Our aim is to make sure that all students have a voice; that every student has a say in shaping Millthorpe’s future. The priority of the council is to encourage the school community to be inclusive, to celebrate differences and to champion student voice and charitable work.

Peer Mentors

Mental Health Champions are young people within school that have been recruited and trained to support other students to improve their wellbeing through developing and learning skills for healthy minds. The MHCs run youth led mental health initiatives and campaigns, with the aim to improve awareness and signposting to mental health as well as leading self-help approaches through sharing tools for healthy minds.

Each September year 8 & 9 students are invited to be involved in a city wide Sports Leadership Programme. This includes a training day and involvement in running and officiating in a range of sporting festivals across the city for primary school students.

The Student Librarians play a vital role in enabling the library to run smoothly and effectively, especially at break and lunch time. Student Librarians are selected from students who regularly use the library, and/or who love books and reading, who have expressed an interest in joining us.
The Student Librarians gain training, and can develop strong friendship bonds with each other and other library users, and despite the vital importance of their role, we also want to see them having fun. They are seen as members of staff and their ideas and concerns are treated accordingly.
