Ethical Leadership Programme


Senior Ethical Leadership Programme

At Lichfield Cathedral School we believe:

  • All students have the potential to develop leadership skills over time
  • All students have the right to develop and demonstrate leadership skills
  • Our Ethical Leadership Programme only works with the support of students, parents, teachers, the School and local community

Student leadership encompasses the school’s provision of:

  • Formal and informal learning opportunities which develop the competency of individuals as leaders and effective participants
  • Processes and structures for student representation and the incorporation of students’ views into decision making and the life of the school

Our unique Ethical Leadership Programme involves opportunities that encourage students to:

  • Act in roles of responsibility with integrity and honesty
  • Foster a sense of vision and purpose
  • Work with others to determine and achieve collective goals
  • Take on responsibilities and use decision making skills in order to carry a project through to a successful conclusion
  • Be active, reflective listeners who respond effectively
  • Earn the respect of others through their actions

Through a combination of training sessions and multiple opportunities to practice leadership, pupils develop skills and attributes that will serve them throughout school, university and life beyond education. We are helping to create the leaders of tomorrow who do what is right because they know it to be so.

Pupil leadership activities link strongly with learning about citizenship and the processes involved in a democracy. They can assist all pupils to learn about, and exercise, the rights and responsibilities of participating in a community that values social justice. Student Councils and school parliaments provide excellent opportunities for pupils to apply their learning in decisions that affect them in the School environment.
