Junior Leadership At Wellfield High School

“Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other” - John F Kennedy

At Wellfield, each year we take applications from our students in years 10 and 11 to become part or the Junior Leadership Team – this is an esteemed position within our school, and the team go on to work very closely with the Senior Leadership Team to ensure our student’s voices and opinions are heard. Our Junior Leadership Team and prefect team demonstrate the high values and standards for Wellfield students on a daily basis. These students are role models to their peers through their involvement in all aspects of school life.

JLT are junior leaders; it is vital that we have a strong team with positive ideas that can have an appropriate and meaningful impact on our school. Within the JLT, there are several roles including leaders of aspirations, community, and well-being; these roles further support our House Captains, Deputy Head and Head students.

Our Head students are fundamental; from ensuring that our JLT and prefect team work harmoniously together to going above and beyond within school and our wider community, our Head students understand that strong leadership skills and the highest academic standards are needed to make Wellfield a nurturing environment that allows all students to make progress.

The Prefect Team at Wellfield High School

As well as our JLT, we have our prefect team; these students consistently demonstrate their passion and determination to make Wellfield a safe, welcoming environment. Prefects are actively involved in day-to-day duties wherein they model excellent standards and set high aspirations for all. You can recognise a prefect by their red tie – they play a huge role in the life of our school, and in particular, ensuring our new Year 7 students are welcomed and helped to settle in quickly.
