Student Leadership

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.

What makes a good

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.

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 find the stage they wish to complete on page 109-111 of their contact book. They will need to read the criteria for the stage they wish to complete (starting with Stage 1). Once they feel they have completed at least two of the examples, a teacher or their tutor will need to sign and date next to it. Once students have completed, signed and dated the required criteria, they should show their contact book to Miss Jones (next to the LRC). 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!

Meet the Student Leadership Team

The Student Leadership Team consists of six Year 11 students; two Head Prefects and four Deputies, who are the main student representatives at the Academy. You will often see these students at Academy events and on the Academy social media pages. 


These six students assist in organising and hosting events throughout the school year, as well as being the leads of the Student Council and the bridge between the student body and the Senior Leadership Team.
