Student Leadership

At Harris Garrard Academy, all students from the primary, secondary and Sixth Form phases can exercise their democratic rights and elect a student leadership team.

Through our student leadership team, every student will have a voice in the running of the academy, and a chance to bring about positive change. In addition, representatives will form four sub-committees to guide developments and improvements within the school: Equality, Diversity and Inclusion; Eco-committee; Pastoral, Attendance and Behaviour; Teaching and Learning (including Digital).

Each secondary tutor group and primary class holds a mini election to choose their class representative. The positions of Head Student, Vice Head Student and Hub Captain are open to our sixth formers, who put themselves forward as candidates and must take part in hustings, before an election being held across the whole school. Candidates must also undergo an interview with the Head of Academy.

A message from our student leaders

Yusuf, Head Student

At Harris Garrard Academy, we pride ourselves on student involvement in the leadership ladder, which is truly reflected through the role of Head Student. My name is Yusuf and I am the Head Student of the academy. I am currently studying A Level Maths, Chemistry and Economics with hopes of studying clinical pharmacology at a top-level university. I have been at the academy since the age of five.

To me, being Head Student of the academy means I am essentially the bridge between students and teachers. I aim to play an active role in helping students find the necessary help that they require as some may not know where or who to go to. I also aspire to create a sense of community within the school, especially the Sixth Form, which I believe I can do through my friendly and approachable attitude.

I cannot express how proud I am to be Head Student of this academy and work alongside the brilliant leadership team to ensure that students feel safe and also so students feel proud to come to this academy every day.

Yusuf, Head Student


Aleyna, Vice Head Student

My name is Aleyna and I am currently a Vice Head Student at Harris Garrard Academy, Sixth Form. I am undertaking English Literature, Sociology and Business A Level and I aspire to do Law at university.

In addition, over the last five years that I have spent at HGA, I have come to understand many things including responsibility, hard work and commitment. During my time at Sixth Form, I was fortunate enough to see the beneficial aspects such as smaller class sizes, essential study areas and supportive teachers which allowed me to always reach my full potential.

Being within this Sixth Form has enabled me to gather many opportunities such as online work experience, one week law work experience at a law firm, and guidance for UCAS. This, therefore, allows me to feel prepared to take on the significant and demanding nature of this role in order to help and support the younger years below us.

I think that what matters most about being part of the growing Sixth Form is the bonds that we build which I believe are crucial for the environment that we are in. This allows us as individuals to be surrounded by positivity. Furthermore, what I would like to work on for the future of the Sixth Form is to build support for the mental wellbeing of the students and have committees in place. I believe these new additions will allow us to build a thriving atmosphere that will enable students to achieve their full potential.

Aleyna, Vice Head Student


Ola, Vice Head Student

Hi, I would like to welcome you to the Harris Garrard Academy Sixth Form. Our vision for the Sixth Form is ‘’creating well-rounded, happy and successful individuals who pride themselves on their life and academic successes.’’

My name is Ola, and I am a Vice Head Student at Harris Garrard Academy. I study Biology, Chemistry and Maths; I have huge aspirations and ambitions to become a doctor in the future. In the Sixth Form I value the close, family-like community and university guidance. To me what matters most is having ambition and passion for something in life and working hard towards that goal. During my time as a Vice Head student, I wish to help others to gain confidence and prioritise their mental health but also reach their full academic potential and dreams.

Ola, Vice Head Student
