Like all Star schools, our Academy has a Leadership specialism. Our Leadership offer is designed to instil the three interdependent Star Leadership Virtues of Performance Leadership, Moral Leadership and Civic Leadership – virtues that together ensure our pupils not only ‘do their best’ but ‘do the right thing’ and play a full role in society.
We provide our pupils with a unique learning experience, which gives them the skills and confidence to lead and manage in a variety of settings and situations. Our Leadership initiatives promote maturity, commitment and teamwork and enable our pupils to experience what it is like to stand up and take the lead.
The Highfield Leadership Passport identifies the opportunities and activities in which pupils can be involved to enable them to develop as well-rounded, ethical and accomplished leaders of the future. Pupils work towards Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum awards.
We promote leadership in the broadest sense – not limited to traditional public roles. We are committed to developing confident individuals who are leaders at home, amongst their peers and friendship groups, their community and, later on, in the workplace.
