Student Leadership

Student leadership and student voice and Teign School

Involvement in leadership and voice activities can improve students’ learning as well as helping them to develop the skills and traits needed for success outside of the classroom. – SSAT

At Teign we are delighted to have a vast range of student leadership and student voice opportunities available to all students. Recruitment week takes place each September and following assemblies and tutorials students from all years can sign up to participate in many leadership groups.Positions


Students take great pride in belonging to a leadership group and we have many lapel badges to acknowledge their positions and raise the profile of leadership at Teign.

Subject ambassadors take a leading role at open evening and support different departments during the year with homework clubs, extracurricular clubs and new staff interviews. They are all enthusiastic about the subject they represent and are fantastic role models.
