Student Leadership Opportunities

We are very pleased to share details of two leadership opportunities.

1. Current year 9 students are invited to become Senior Students. 

Being a Senior Student is a great way to give back to your school, but also to get more out of it.

Senior Students undertake a huge responsibility and honour on behalf of the school, which benefits not only themselves but the wider school.

As such, we are looking for incredibly high standards of discipline, punctuality, commitment and maturity. Above all, a strong Senior Student is highly motivated and ready to give up their time for the whole year, across a range of duties and responsibilities.

We invite you to read carefully the job description to understand what we are looking for.

Submit your application form to your Head of House by Friday 26th June (make a copy of the application document, to save your own completed version)

House teams will then shortlist and commence interviews w.b. 29th June. 

2. Current year 10 students are invited to apply for Head Boy and Head Girl roles. 

The Head Boy and Head Girl undertake a great deal of responsibility on behalf of the school, which benefits not only themselves but also the wider school. As such, we are looking for incredibly high standards of discipline, punctuality, commitment and maturity.
The most important aspect of your role would involve:

  • Managing the Senior student team.
  • Attending regular meetings to discuss issues arising from Senior Student duties and responsibilities.
  • Performing public speaking duties at all appropriate whole school events.


We invite you to read carefully the job description to understand what we are looking for.

Submit your application form to jassi.johal@lister.newham.sch.uk by Friday 3rd July (make a copy of the application document, to save your own completed version)

Should your application be successful, you will be provided with a presentation task on the w.b. Monday 6th July and then be invited for an interview with the Headteacher later this term.
