At Earlston High School, Leadership is not just about the few leading the many, it is about leadership for all. By that we mean leadership opportunities allowing our young people to take charge in their lives and helping shape school life and their education to the benefit of all.
Currently we have 130 formal leadership roles for our young people who complement the excellent work of the S6 Head team and prefects.
Student Council – Pupil Voice
Young people can be a catalyst for change at Earlston High School by bringing issues and ideas to the Student Council through their Pupil Voice representatives of which there are ten in every year.
In addition to the Student Council each year group has 10-12 School Ambassadors who help shape and run day to day activities and larger events in the school. These roles carry a lot of responsibility and the pupils selected went through a formal application process.
The school has five houses, Eden, Leader, Teviot, Tweed and Turfford, of which every student is a member of one. We have two Senior House captains in S6 who motivate and lead the whole House, we also have two Sports Captains for each House in S6. They are supported by the Junior House and Sports Captains in S3 who provide Leadership to the junior students in the school.
Every pupil at Earlston High School has the opportunity to develop their leadership skills through departments, extra-curricular clubs and lessons.
