Woodham Academy has this year introduced a new ambassadors programme to give year 11 students an opportunity to shine as leaders and role models.
They will meet a wide variety of the visitors the school receives, partners from outside the school, talk to parents and also prospective students.
“All our Year 11 students have embraced the opportunity to support the daily workings of the school as well as linking themselves with students in Year 7 and 8 as mentors and supporters,” said the school’s director of student support, Pam Hall.
“This helps our students look forward to their next steps ensuring that they stand out in their selection process for jobs, apprenticeships and college places as well as building their communication skills and confidence for life.”
All students are currently on a four week trial. After this time all those students who have shown excellent organizational and leadership qualities will be selected to continue with the role throughout the coming academic year.
