Leadership at Therfield


Leadership is a key strand of the School Vision and Aims. The skills learnt through leadership development improve current academic ability and allow those taking part to foster life skills for the future. It allows students to develop a wide range of personal and inter-personal skills such as: organisation, self-belief, self-confidence, independence, responsibility, awareness, employability, understanding, problem solving, communication, team work, social understanding, time management and a spirit of discovery and adventure.

Therfield is committed to provide as many opportunities for our students to develop these skills throughout their time at school. Fundamentally this starts in lessons, is supported through our House system and is further enhanced through our wide and exciting extra-curricular programme.

 

Opportunities where students can enhance their leadership skills include:

  • Tutor representatives, House Prefects and Peer Mentors
  • Duke of Edinburgh: Bronze, Silver and Gold
  • Literacy, Maths and Foreign Language Leadership Awards
  • Sports Leadership Awards: Young Sports Leader, Community Sports Leader, Higher Sports Leader
  • Young Ambassadors for Sport
  • World Challenge Expeditions
  • Surrey School Games (competitions in Sport, Creative Writing, Motor Sport, Art, Chess…)
  • North Surrey Schools Sports Association – matches, leagues and tournaments
  • Numerous clubs, trips and activities throughout the year, culminating in our Activity Days in July


From our success in developing Leadership over the past few years we have received the following recognition:

  • Sports Leaders UK ‘Leadership Academy’ Status
  • Youth Sports Trust Lead school for Surrey on ‘Leadership, Coaching and Volunteering’


Both awards highlight Therfield School as a ‘beacon of good practice’ within Surrey and the South East region and enable us to support other schools and establishments in their leadership development.
