Student Leadership at cromwell community college
At Cromwell Community College we believe that students should be given a wide range of opportunities to develop and practise leadership skills in preparation for life beyond school.
We provide many opportunities as part of our pupil voice provision which has a big impact on improving the quality of teaching and learning and allows pupils to voice their opinions as to how they would like to see the College move forward. You can find out more about our school and year councils, and democracy at Cromwell on our student voice page.
There are many more leadership opportunities and we are proud of the way that our pupils and students embrace the challenge of the roles they take on and by the way they represent their school, both in College and in the local community.
Anybody can apply for the student leadership roles and we are usually spoilt for choice.
