Student leadership

In This Section

There are many opportunities at Walton to get involved in student leadership activities.

Head Girl and deputies

Our Head Girl and deputies go through a rigorous application process, including interviews with the leadership team followed by  presentations to the entire school. This year, Walton elected the new head and deputy head girls. Our new Head Girl is Layla Stephenson, supported by Teagan Harrison-Goodger and Bethany Oliver.

House captains

Each house has house captains who lead and motivate their houses in challenges and inter-house competitions.

Prefects

Prefects are chosen from each of the houses. Students can apply for these positions of responsibility and act as ambassadors for the academy.

Peer mentors

Peer mentors support younger students and help new students and year 7 students settle into life at the academy.

Sports ambassadors

Walton’s sports ambassadors assist at various events both within the academy and throughout the wider county.  As well as helping with the set up and running of school-level sports events, they aim to inspire other students to get active, participate and volunteer.

Getting involved

Talk to your house leaders or tutors about how you can apply for, or get involved in, any of the above projects.
