BGS at Student Leadership Conference

Last week, six students from Years 9 and 10 completed the Bristol Education Partnership’s Student Leadership Programme, which is supported by Burges Salmon.

The final session of the Programme was hosted by Clifton College and offered students from several schools across the city the first opportunity to meet each other in-person as prior sessions were conducted on Zoom due to Covid restrictions.

One of the BEP’s aims is to encourage cooperation between Bristol schools and this programme introduces students to a range of leadership skills, including making presentations, team-building and project management so that their innate abilities can be developed. The students worked hard over a five-month period to complete a portfolio of tasks and run a social action project by offering a lunchtime homework club to younger students.

Fiona Carnie, Bristol Education Partnership Project Lead, commented that “The presentations of their social action projects were all excellent: they have undertaken a wide range of projects with a high level of commitment. I think they were inspired too, by hearing the presentations from other schools.”
