The Student Council badge
To get this badge two of you from each year
group will be elected through form
representatives in order to represent your year
to the other year groups, along with two
These badges are awarded if you are
elected by your tutor to represent them
at year group meetings.
The red prefect badges
These are used by the English and
languages departments. The languages
department has prefects in Year 10, these
students must apply for the role and are
appointed by teachers based on their
leadership skills and ability to help others.
English also have ‘readers’ in Year 8 and
they wear ‘reader’ badges. They are
ambassadors for reading and these are a
step below our English prefects. The
badges are similar to the student council
badges in style but are a little bigger.
Currently Year 11 Leadership Prefects
Leadership prefects have always been
distinguishable by their shield badge which
matches their tie colour. Leadership
prefects have to apply for the position and
are the face of the student body at official
events with academy stakeholders and
may also guide younger students (for
example in assemblies). From this year
leadership prefects will be distinguishable
by their block colour tie.
Numeracy Leader Programme
Year 12/13 students support Year 7
students. The maths department
choose 20 such leaders alongside
Cerys Atkinson, our Head Numeracy
Leader. Applicants are invited to apply
on a postcard stating why they would
like to be chosen and why they feel
they are suitable for the role. The only
requirement is that they should have a
grade C in maths.
Sports ambassadors in PE
We choose a maximum of 10% of
students per year group. They are
based on participation in extra
curricular activities, sporting
excellence and willingness to work
hard in the dept.
They are expected to assist with
tournaments / games / festivals /
department events throughout the
PD star of the week badge - one per class

Humanities ambassadors - we use this badge for all our
ambassadors and prefects. Y12 and 13 also have a purple
lanyard. At KS3 and KS4 ambassadors organise and run
competitions and events, they organise the displays outside
classrooms and they promote the learning in humanities.
At KS5 students help the younger ambassadors and organise
and supervise work. As well as this they mentor younger
students and come to lessons to support learning at GCSE.
