Student Leadership at Newmarket Academy

Newmarket Academy believes that giving students the opportunity to participate in leadership programmes is vital to their development. It raises aspiration and gives students access to new and exciting opportunities.

Student involvement in leadership activities can improve their learning as well as helping them to develop new skills needed for outside the classroom and further education/employment. 

Our leadership programme aims to increase the opportunity for student leadership across the Academy and to enhance the input students have with whole school events and inclusion/diversity awareness. The leadership opportunities at Newmarket Academy aim to be inclusive to ensure that all students have the opportunity to lead.

What we are looking for from our student leaders

  • A positive attitude towards school
  • An exemplary behaviour and attendance record
  • A high level of motivation to improve the Academy
  • Confidence and the ability to communicate effectively
  • Reliability and dedication
