Ethical Leadership


Ethical Leadership Programme

At Lichfield Cathedral School we believe that all students have the potential to develop leadership skills.

Our unique Ethical Leadership Programme encourage students to:

  • Act in roles of responsibility with integrity and honesty
  • Foster a sense of vision and purpose
  • Work with others to determine and achieve collective goals
  • Take on responsibilities and use ethical decision-making skills in order to carry a project through to a successful conclusion
  • Be active, reflective listeners who respond effectively
  • Earn the respect of others through their actions

Junior, Senior, and Sixth Form leadership roles challenge young people to develop greater confidence as they gradually take on responsibilities. They develop interpersonal and intrapersonal skills including communication, negotiation, team work and reflection.
Embedded in our Ethical Leadership Programme are formalised leadership roles such as Form Captains and Vice-Captains, House Captains, Librarians, Playground Buddies, and representatives on the School Council. Pupils from Year 4 to Year 13 act as guides for prospective parents because we believe they are the best ambassadors for our school.

Pupils develop skills and attributes that will serve them throughout school, university, and life beyond education. The ethos of the Sixth Form encourages the development of confidence, responsible attitudes and self-discipline. This enables the Sixth Form, and the whole school, to operate as a community and to prepare students for adult life.

We are helping to create the leaders of tomorrow who do what is right because they know it to be so.
