Head Students' Welcome 

Hello and welcome to Wellfield Academy! Starting secondary school can be a daunting experience, but we were once in your position too and promise to be by your side throughout your entire Wellfield journey.

We are the Junior Leadership Team, and we are here for you. After spending the previous 4 years at this school, we wanted to give back and in this position we can. We are pleased to have been given the opportunity to improve the day-to-day life of our school for our fellow pupils. Our goal is to make the school as warm and welcoming as possible for you.

The JLT provides a link between students and staff, to provide teachers with an insight into a pupil’s perspective of the school. We are here for any of your concerns and will forward them to help make a positive impact for you, which is ultimately our main role.

Over the years, our passion for the school has only ever increased day-by-day. We engage in all activities possible – from film clubs to sports clubs to STEM clubs. It is important to maximise the opportunities the school can offer. We believe every student deserves to make the most of their time here and the JLT will stop at nothing to achieve that for you.

A happy environment is better for all and trust us when we say everybody at Wellfield will give 110% towards this for you. We look forward to seeing you and hope you enjoy the same fantastic experience we all have.

Sam, Callum and Lois

Junior Leadership At Wellfield Academy

“Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other” - John F Kennedy

At Wellfield, each year we take applications from our students in years 10 and 11 to become part or the Junior Leadership Team – this is an esteemed position within our school, and the team go on to work very closely with the Senior Leadership Team to ensure our student’s voices and opinions are heard. Our Junior Leadership Team and prefect team demonstrate the high values and standards for Wellfield students on a daily basis. These students are role models to their peers through their involvement in all aspects of school life.

JLT are junior leaders; it is vital that we have a strong team with positive ideas that can have an appropriate and meaningful impact on our school. Within the JLT, there are several roles including leaders of aspirations, community, and well-being; these roles further support our House Captains, Deputy Head and Head students.

Our Head students are fundamental; from ensuring that our JLT and prefect team work harmoniously together to going above and beyond within school and our wider community, our Head students understand that strong leadership skills and the highest academic standards are needed to make Wellfield a nurturing environment that allows all students to make progress.

The Prefect Team at Wellfield Academy

As well as our JLT, we have our prefect team; these students consistently demonstrate their passion and determination to make Wellfield a safe, welcoming environment. Prefects are actively involved in day-to-day duties wherein they model excellent standards and set high aspirations for all. You can recognise a prefect by their red tie – they play a huge role in the life of our school, and in particular, ensuring our new Year 7 students are welcomed and helped to settle in quickly.
