Leading your School
Notting Hill sixthformers really do shape and lead their school. You can expect to be treated as an adult and you’ll be offered considerable opportunities for developing responsibility, teamwork and leadership skills.
Everyone shares the responsibilities of welcoming visitors to the school, helping with the organisation of events or supervising activities. There are plenty of opportunities to make your mark. You can get involved with the school magazine, run a club – or start one, help to produce school productions, train as a pool lifeguard, run a music group or ensemble, or share your experience or passion in assembly.
The House System, run entirely by Year 12, gives you the opportunity to make school life more enjoyable for younger pupils, through music, art, sports, debating, drama, dance and anything else you want to do. You’ll be the responsible leader giving younger girls a chance to do more, and have fun in the process.
In Year 12, you can serve as a mentor to a new girls arriving in Year 7, fulfilling a ‘big sister’ role, helping them settle in quickly and to deal successfully with the challenges of their new school.
In Year 13, the year group elects a Head Girl Team who are an important link in ensuring the school functions smoothly. There are also opportunities to be a Subject Secretary and work with staff in particular areas of the school.
In the sixth form at Notting Hill, whatever your interest or skill, you’ll be able to develop it.
