What is Student Leadership?


Student leadership at Fareham Academy enables students to build relationships and empower others to make a difference in our school and the local community. Leadership is not about power, authority or control but about encouraging others to improve the way things are done by being a positive role model and displaying passion.

Our student leadership programme consists of two initiatives; our student leadership stages and the student leadership team (Head Prefects, Deputies and Department Prefects). It is through this programme that we hope to guide students towards being positive, self-reflective, confident, organised and flexible individuals.

We believe leaders are made, not born. Every student has the capability of becoming a great leader and we hope our student leadership programme can nurture and develop the potential in every student through opportunities, experience but most importantly by recognition.

Student Leadership Stages

It is the Academy's responsibility to make sure that students leave being confident, responsible and aspirational citizens.

The Student Leadership Stages programme enables students, staff and parents to recognise the actions our students are already undertaking to demonstrate the qualities of a good leader. Our students are taught to believe that they have the capabilities to become the leaders of their generation and inspire the people around them.


The Leadership Stages are accessible to all students and they are encouraged to attempt Leadership Stages 1 and 2. Leadership Stages 3 to 5 suit students who are more committed, confident and evaluative of their own learning. Students are recognised and rewarded for the leadership actions they take within school.

Stage 5

How do students achieve the Student Leadership Stages?

Students will need to complete the stages in order (from Stage 1-5) but they don’t have to complete all the stages. Students should print off the stage they wish to complete and write their name and tutor group at the top. They will need to read the criteria for the stage they wish to complete (starting with Stage 1). Once they feel they have completed any of the examples, they must sign and date next to it. Once students have completed, signed and dated all 5 of the criteria, they should hand their form to Miss Jones (next to the LRC). Termly certificates and Leadership Stage badges will be presented to students for them to keep.

If students have any questions, or have done something that is not on the criteria that they think deserves to be, then please don’t hesitate to ask Miss Jones.


Good luck!

Miss L Jones

Head of Student Leadership
