Student Leadership

Student Leadership

All students have a contribution to life at PACA.

Our mission is for pupils to develop great character while at PACA. Pupils should develop the independence and determination to lead and learn to communicate well and work within a team. Student leadership roles provide pupils with opportunities to achieve this.

Through student leadership roles, pupils can help shape and lead their academy whilst developing important skills and developing entrepreneurial attributes.
