Talking about future leaders within the context of a prep school may seem far fetched. However, we know that the experiences we give the boys and girls in our care sets them off on the right foot, confident to put their hands up, to volunteer and to feel happy about taking part.
Starting their senior school life with this positivity ensures that they will take and be rewarded for all the chances that come their way, reinforcing their self-belief.
Opportunities for taking on positions of responsibility begin at an early age at Heywood Prep. School assemblies and productions build confidence to stand up in front of their peers and parents. There are positions to be held on the School Council, which sits to discuss a wide range of school matters. Our Year 6 prefects are responsible for a range of duties, from supporting younger children socially, to writing blogs and spearheading the school’s ecological efforts.
The Wishford Enterprise Award brings a whole raft of opportunities for personal development. In a competition for Year 6 children across the group of schools, children take a business idea through from concept to development, design, marketing and finally sales.
