We actively encourage our senior students to contribute to the wider life of the school, thereby opening their minds to new levels of responsibility and participation. Students can undertake duties on a rota basis and are all part of our flagship committee attending school events such as Open and Parent Evenings. They play a major role in organising our social and fundraising events. Capital 6 students are a tremendous help to the school and play a very important part in the life at the Academy. They take pride in being role models for the younger students.

Student Parliament

The positions of Head Boy, Head Girl, their deputies and house captains are positions of responsibilities and ones that provide an important connection between pupils and staff. At Capital 6 students are given the opportunity to make a real difference and be an active member of Capital 6 by becoming a part of the Student Voice body.

Students of the Year

This award is given each year to 2 students graduating from Year 13. The award consists of an inscribed glass trophy and a cash prize. It is given to students who have shown outstanding commitment and achievement academically and also have contributed to Capital City Academy and the wider community.

Active Citizenship

All Year 12 students should volunteer at least one period per week in assisting with a variety of activities around the school. Students can help in lessons, act as Reading Mentors and/or Literacy Leaders for younger students, translating for parents and newly arrived EAL students.

Literacy and Numeracy Leaders

Students are given the opportunity to assist both their peers and younger students in their literacy and numeracy learning. This is a fantastic opportunity for students to develop their leadership and communication skills. In order to take part, students might go through an application process as there are sometimes paid opportunities for literacy and numeracy interventions.

Primary Liaison

Students support with our primary liaison work leading on Y5 and 6 projects in the Arts, Languages and Science. Work experience placements are offered at our partner primary schools.

Orange Jacket and Active Play - Paid Leadership Positions

Students within Capital 6 are given a unique opportunity to apply for a paid leadership position within our ‘Active Play’, ‘Orange Jacket’ and ‘Catering Leaders’ programmes. Students in the scheme take on a variety of leadership roles including: supervision; providing sports equipment for students; running active play and assisting with Primary Night. The Catering Leaders’ duties cover serving meals, supervising lunch time and operating the tills. They are also involved in assisting at other school events.

Leadership Academy

Capital City Academy runs a very successful Leadership Programme with its roots and drive being the sports leadership programme. Students take part in the programme through core PE lessons, GCSE, BTEC and A-level courses together with volunteering within the school and local community through the clubs and classes programme. Our Volunteers are regularly in the top 3 schools in the UK for hours accumulated volunteering through the Step into Sport programme. Students are given opportunities to obtain qualifications and awards such as Sports Leaders Awards Level 1& 2, coaching and refereeing certification. Our Sports leaders have taken part in the Olympics and Paralympics, some of which were games makers and volunteers. The primary sports night within the clubs and classes programme provides students with an opportunity to volunteer and develop skills such as communication, team work and organisation. There are also opportunities for sports leaders’ to run their own sports clubs at lunch and after school. All of our leaders are rewarded with sports leaders’ clothing, rewards trip and celebration evenings.
