At Taunton School we aim to equip our students with the confidence, experience and skills to naturally take up leadership roles in their lives both within and beyond school.
Our students are able to access leadership through the breadth of activities and opportunities available to our students. This stretches our students through participation, contribution and organisation, alongside peer to peer mentoring.
Being a leader develops communication/interpersonal skills, decision making, teamwork, time management, planning, organisation, negotiation, creativity, confidence, commitment and engagement.
At the heart of the sixth form is the belief that our students need to be exposed to leadership opportunities as part of their overall school experience and be empowered to develop their individual styles by reflecting and evaluating the outcomes.
There are many other opportunities for students to develop as leaders, these include as Heads of School, Prefects, through student run societies (MUN, Amnesty, Green Club to name a few) as peer mentors, sports captains, through music and drama, DoE, Ten Tors, and in the Combined Cadet Force (CCF).
