Nurturing Today’s Young People, Inspiring Tomorrow’s Leaders.

All Star schools share a Leadership specialism. We strongly believe that the leaders of tomorrow must be nurtured through positive experiences today; that it is not enough simply to teach about good leadership, but that it must experienced.

We provide our pupils with a unique leadership learning experience, which gives them the skills and confidence to lead and manage in a variety of settings and situations. We promote leadership in the broadest sense; developing confident individuals who are leaders at home, amongst their peers and friendship groups, their community and, later on, in the workplace.

Our Star R-18 Leadership Framework captures this commitment to nurture and develop the leadership potential of Star pupils via the identification of moral, performance and civic virtues linked to a competency matrix that encompasses the entire schooling experience from Reception to Key Stage 5.  Trust led initiatives and partnerships with local and national organisations provide the opportunities and experiences for Star pupils to develop these competencies through the prism of our five leadership foundations: sport; creativity; performing arts; enterprise and careers; and charity and social action.

In placing leadership at the very heart of our organisation, we aspire to develop well-rounded, ethical and accomplished leaders of tomorrow. Pupil leaders who act from a strong self-concept. Individuals who are passionate, determined and tenacious; willing to courageously lead and to humbly serve others. These leaders are inspiring role models and active citizens equipped to engage across a diverse and wide range of contexts in the pursuit of excellence.
