Student Leadership

Student Leadership is a vital part of The Weald School. We believe that offering Students the chance to experience one of the vast numbers of leadership roles that we offer helps them to develop personally, underpinning the key values and ethos of the School. Leadership enables our Students to be proactive and independent, whilst empowering them with other key skills to use long after their time with us.

Radio Weald Radio Weald is a place for young leaders to take their love of music and radio and share it with others. Student leaders are vital to the running of our much-loved radio station. At our Tuesday meetings after school you will learn from and lead workshops, create radio shows, broadcast to the school and also learn how to manage the studio so that Radio Weald runs like clockwork.
LRC The Student Librarians carry out a variety of duties to keep the LRC running smoothly and supporting the LRC Manager. They process new stock, shelve books, make displays, issue books, help with author visits and book clubs.

GreenPower Car For several years now, our team of approximately twenty students have been an active participant in the Greenpower Car championships. This is a national schools’ competition in which students design and build an electric car, powered by batteries, and race it. The team meet once a week to work on the cars and have had national success in their work.

Eco club aims to make the school more environmentally aware, eco-friendly and a safe area for local wildlife.
Art The Art Leaders range across all year groups and their main role is to promote art in school as well as work on projects in the wider community. Students share and combine ideas, developing their art skills. Art leaders promote wellbeing and friendship through learning together.
