Our Sixth Form are role models for the rest of the school. They provide visible leadership to the lower years and help spearhead new initiatives in school.
The Head Student leads a team of four other students who all have their own areas of responsibility including Interact and charity initiatives, worship, mentoring, prom and yearbook, plus any other areas they wish to take a lead on. Each member of the Head Girl Team takes responsibility for a different year group within lower school and leads student council meetings with Form Captains in that year group.
Beyond the Head Student Team we have a Sixth Form Senate. This is made up of Form Captains and Deputy Form Captains of all eight Sixth Form Tutor Groups. This group of students meet once a month with the Assistant Headteacher ( 16-19 Provision) to discuss ways to improve life within the Sixth Form and also helps to set agenda for the lower school student council.
As well as providing excellent leadership experience for our students this also helps improve the quality of provision within school and places our Sixth Form firmly at the forefront of our school community.
Take a look at the messages below from our current Head Student Team:
Hi, my name is Anya, and I am one of the head students at Archbishop Blanch. Throughout my six years at this exceptional school, I have been encouraged to work alongside others as part of a warm and welcoming community, to develop skills that will benefit me later in life. The emphasis the school places on its Christian ethos differentiates it from others, making it a school where values are demonstrated by both pupils and staff alike. I am very fortunate to be a part of this amazing community.
Welcome to Archbishop Blanch, my name is David and I am one of the new head students for this outstanding school. I am a new student to this school, only arriving in September, and for me, this place already feels like home! Archbishop Blanch's sixth form is second to none due to its diligent teachers who consistently strive for the best for their students and the wonderful facilities that provide an adequate learning environment. It truly is a special school.
