Park Lane Academy

Student Leadership


Developing strong leadership skills in our young people is a key focus for the academy. Whether it’s being selected as head students or serving as prefects or as a member of the academy Student Council – student voice matters to us!

It’s important to us for our students to participate fully in shaping our school community. Our student leadership structure allows our students to have a real say on issues that affect them as well as coming up with solutions to improve how our academy is run. Every tutor group in every year has an elected representative on the School Council, and this group meets half-termly. Fundraising was on this half term's agenda, and the main focus for next half term will be improving our environment. 

In Year 11 we also have the Student Leadership Group, consisting of our three head students, a head Prefects, deputy prefect and then the prefect team. This group has tremendous responsibilities which reflect their leadership qualities, including the smooth running of Open Evening and Parents' Evenings. The team are also working closely with primary schools to develop links. Exciting times ahead
