Students at Capital City Academy play a significant leadership role in many aspects of school life. They volunteer within the school and local community and log their hours to receive rewards such as clothing, further training/qualifications and the chance of part time employment.
Every student has the opportunity to take part in the leadership programme which runs across the school. This includes Sports, Language, Arts, Food Technology and ICT placements. Our work in this area has been recognised nationally and is frequently commented upon by visitors. In 2013/14 Capital City Academy was the top school in England for the amount of volunteer hours logged on the Step Into Sport Programme. Our leaders work within the school and local community, deliver and train other leaders across London and run the academy’s student parliament.
Another fantastic leadership opportunity that students can take part in is The Duke of Edinburgh Award which was launched to Year 9 in Spring 2015. This programme of activities offers students the opportunity to develop their mind, body and soul in an environment of social interaction, team working and physical challenge (an expedition).
The academy provides opportunities for pupils in all year groups to take on roles of responsibility.
