Student Leadership Team
The Student Leadership Team (SLT) is a core part of the school. The views of the student body are regularly consulted in all aspects of school life from staff appointments to campus developments such as our catering provision.
The SLT are an elected body from each year and form in the school. They are organised into these working groups: Teaching and Learning, Ecology and Sustainability, Charity & Community, Mental Health and Wellbeing, and Digital and Communications. Based on student feedback, in 2020 we will be introducing an Equality and Diversity team as well.
The groups meet regularly, supported by a member of school staff, and their views are always considered and more often taken. Last year the Ecology team successfully changed student habits by abolishing the plastic water bottle, something which is making a huge impact on our plastic waste as a school. Some of the projects which are currently in progress are further reduction of plastic use across the school and canteen; some students are currently trialling the use of reusable cutlery, making the school more sustainable by joining projects such as The Big Spring Clean and Sustainfest St Albans, developing a school Instagram account to promote key events as well as developing Teaching & Learning Boards for each and every classroom to reflect the person after whom it is named. Furthermore, the Charity team have been working hard to run events to raise money for this year’s chosen charity Rainforest Alliance as well as support other charities such as Children in Need, Save the Children and Sport Relief.
