At Park Academy West London, we recognise the potential in all of our students, and as future leaders, we offer a range of opportunities and roles for students to become involved in leading others, influencing practice and embedding change.

We have a variety of range of student leadership opportunities for students in all years and we encourage all of our students with the qualities and aspirations to make a difference to life at our school to take the opportunities presented to them.

What we look for in our Student Leaders?

  • A positive attitude towards the Academy, including commitment to the Academy vision and guiding principles.
  • Their support in a range of school activities and events.
  • Adherence to school uniform and presentation standards.
  • A positive behaviour record and high levels of attendance and punctuality

Our student leadership structure is also the vehicle used for student voice.  Students will complete regular feedback through surveys on a variety of topics.  The feedback from students is taken into account when making decisions and actions arising are shared with students on a regular basis.

Our structure is as follows:

Student SLT
  • Head Boy and Head Girl
  • Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl
  • Two form reps from each year: 11, 12 and 13
Student Leadership Team
  • Chaired by Head Boy and Head Girl
  • Two Form Reps from each year group
Year Group Leadership Teams
  • Chaired by a member of the Student SLT
  • A Form Rep from each Academic Mentoring Group

Students from all year groups also have the opportunity to apply for a role as a prefect and support the day to day running of the Academy, as well as helping at a range of events.
