Leadership Structure

Student leadership is incredibly important at Crofton Academy. It is an opportunity for students to voice their views on improvements to our school and to discuss the day-to-day running of the school. There are numerous opportunities for our students to get involved in leadership both in and around the curriculum.

Leadership Structure

At Crofton Academy, leadership is extremely important and we have several groups that pupils can apply to be part of along with whole school events where students can volunteer as leaders

Prefect Team

Our prefect team in Year 11 is led by Head Prefects, who are supported by our deputies and senior prefects.

Prefects represent the voice of Year 11 and are role models for their peers and younger pupils in school. Prefects are key ambassadors for our school and work with the SLC to promote good behaviour, positive attitudes to learning and high expectations for all.

Student Leadership Council

The SLC is made up of three elected representatives from each year group across the school.

The purpose of the SLC is to give pupils an opportunity to develop leadership skills by organising and carrying out school activities and community projects. In addition to planning events that contribute to school spirit and community welfare, the SLC is the voice of the student body.

Year Group Council

Each form group had two elected representatives who attend meetings to discuss issues and share ideas that affect their own specific year group. The year group councils work closely with the SLC and collaborate on charity events, themed weeks and specific year group initiatives.

Leadership Register

All pupils that are interested in student leadership are placed on our leadership register. Staff at the Academy refer to this when looking for pupils to assist with whole school events, department events and charity work.

Pupils can request to be added to the list at any time by speaking to their form tutor or Mrs Rostron.





All of our leadership teams have worked incredibly hard this academic year to raise awareness of issues, promote charitable activities, support the community and provide feedback and ideas to drive the academy forward.

We are looking forward to building on this year’s success and to welcoming our new prefect team who are excited to take on their roles in September.
