We have high expectations of our students and want them to take responsibility and make the most of opportunities to develop their leadership skills.
We have a Head Boy and Head Girl who are appointed by the Principal following a rigorous application and interview process. They represent the Academy at a wide range of events and provide excellent role models for our students.
We also have Senior Sports and Performing Arts Leaders and Maths Ambassadors.
Leadership within tutor groups and Houses
Our vertical tutoring system, with its mixed age tutor groups, gives older students the chance to lead by example, providing important role models for our younger students.
Each tutor group has representatives that sit on their House Council.
Leadership within the Academy Council
We also have an Academy Council which is chaired by students and supported by senior staff.
The Academy Council represents the voice of the students within the academy and feeds back directly to senior management.
The Council has had a vital say in the design of the new building and their responsibility stretches beyond the Academy walls, representing Ormiston Bushfield Academy at Peterborough’s Youth Council.
Leadership in the wider community
Sixth form students act as ambassadors in each House and take responsibility for organising events and activities for Primary school pupils that we invite to the Academy.
