Student Leadership

Our Vision

Student leaders are young people that have a vision of what they want to achieve and the courage to achieve it. They have the potential to empower and support their peers.  Therefore, at The Coleshill School students can apply and be considered for one or many roles within our student leadership team. In return students will have the opportunity to develop key skills in leadership, teamwork, and collaboration to name but a few, whilst making improvements to the lives of those at The Coleshill School and in the wider community. They will receive a badge for their role, student lanyard and will be able to demonstrate their contribution to the school through earning a AQA Leadership Award.
