Student Leadership

We value the importance of your voice at Crispin. We have listened to your opinions about how to shape the future of the school and as such we are keen for you to feel a sense of ownership over the decisions made.

At Crispin we have many opportunities for students to develop their leadership skills to prepare them for life post education. A school is only as good as its students and as such, we want our students to feel like they can carve the path that Crispin will walk through.

This is why we decided to have a whole school democratic voting system to appoint our new House Captains and Vice House Captains. We are delighted to announce that the following Year 11 students were appointed after a very gruelling application process:

Tyto – Jake Smart and Willow Bird

Sturnus – Reegan Bath and Hannah Bates

Corvus – Drew Walker and James Andrews

Falco – Jay Blackwood and Connor Stringer

As wonderful as it is having our eldest students in positions of leadership, we also value the leadership skills and opinions of our younger students too. We are currently having an in-tutor vote for two students from every group to create our four House Councils, which will ultimately become our school council when combined. Meetings will happen termly and we welcome your tutor groups’ opinions on issues such as the food served, behaviour around the school site and the design and structuring of the site itself.

Furthermore, we also have our six Head Students. These students are the people we turn to, to speak at public events, lead students in the moral and social conduct and act as a connection between staff and students. Mr Reddick and Mrs Cowper meet with the Head Students once every fortnight. 

Our Head students are Zac Nobes, Bethany Lewis, Fergus Main, Jacob Russell, Harriet Shillito and Holly Smith.

Finally, our wonderful Prefects, chosen for their academic achievements and exemplary behaviour. We have appointed over 100 of them. You can find them wearing the distinctive yellow ties. These students will be patrolling the site at break and lunchtime to ensure the conduct around site is to the highest standard. Please feel free to speak to them about any problems or issues you would like to raise and they will be happy to help.
