Student Leadership

Student Leadership

Student Leadership is an important part of our vision and commitment to our students. We have high aspirations for our students and believe that developing them as leaders plays a key role in community transformation and improving their life chances.

We aim to give students the confidence and oracy skills needed to navigate themselves in elite spaces later in life as well as the skills needed to lead and promote positive change in their own communities.

Student Leaders form an integral part of the Student Voice process and have the opportunity to meet regularly with the Academy Leadership Team and effect real change in the school. We aim to make our Student Leadership team diverse and representative of our student body. We expect Student Leaders to represent our Maritime values of Strength, Pride and Unity and consistently showcase our ethos of ‘Making Excellence a Habit’.

Our Principal Student Leaders are voted for by their peers and are given the opportunity and responsibility on leading on self-directed projects within the school as well as being important ambassadors for Maritime in the community.

Through Student Leadership roles, students are able to build a portfolio of evidence to contribute towards core leadership skills. The circle map below demonstrates the skills needed, with the Frame Of Reference (FOR) demonstrating how students at Maritime Academy might demonstrate these.

Student Ambassadors

We know that moving to secondary school can be both an exciting and anxious time for our young people, especially for those children who are perhaps the only child from their primary school moving to Maritime.

Therefore we have recruited some Student Ambassadors for Maritime to help answer any questions that our students might have and to ensure they have a friendly face and name to support their move to secondary school.

Meet the team below:

Their role in the school is to be a good friend. They are here to answer questions and ensure that our students feel comfortable and confident when transitioning to the Academy when they begin their Voyage with us in September and beyond. Each member of the Student Ambassador team applied for the role, was interviewed and appointed, so we are confident that these students are the right young people to offer care, advice and support to all Maritime students.Your preferences have prevented this content from being loaded.

“Over the course of the next few weeks and months, we will be here to answer your questions, please complete the MS Form to the right and we will get back to you as soon as we can! We very much look forward to hearing from you and learning alongside you as we start Maritime Academy as the very first group of students.” The Student Ambassador Team.
