Student Leadership

Roles of Responsibility

Many of the opportunities offered at DGGS are designed to nurture student leaders.  From Year 7 students are given the opportunity to take an active role within the school community.  This could be as a Form Captain, supporting the Form Tutor in registration and organising class events or as a Sports Captain responsible for organising the teams for interhouse sports tournaments and Sports Day.  Every form also has a Philanthropic Representative who helps to collect money for the chosen class charity, and an Environment Representative who takes an active role in developing an eco-friendly system within school.  There are School Council Representatives in each Year Group, who are part of two teams led by the Head Students.  They attend meetings, work on projects together and disseminate the information back to the other Form Captains in their Year Groups to disseminate back to forms.

By the time students reach the Sixth Form the opportunities to lead within the school community are myriad.

Head Student Team (HST)

The Student Leadership Team in 2017-2018 consists of the two Head Students and the six House Captains.  They are role models within our community and often represent the school at public functions and important school events.   The application and selection process is rigorous for these very popular positions.

Sixth Form House Teams

The Houses are run by the House Captain, assisted by two Deputy House Captains.  A senior member of staff supports.  They play a key role in our School Community, maintaining their House Board, leading House Assemblies and encouraging their Houses to raise money for charities and to collect House Points.
