Breakfast at Wetherspoons... for our sixth form support stars

Thu, 30 Mar 2017

We are lucky enough to have a fantastic team of student ambassadors at The Bulwell Academy. Recently, our sixth form ambassadors were treated to Breakfast at Wetherspoons as a reward for all the additional support they have given to the Academy.

Ms Yarnall, Head of Sixth Form, said, “These students are a great team of support stars who have shown leadership in their positive demonstrations for promoting the Sixth Form and representing our academy within the school and local community. They are always supportive, committed, motivated and enthusiastic in their approach to academy enrichment and development”.

If you are moving up to sixth form next year, here is a taste of what being a student ambassador means. It is definitely something worth doing for you, your school and your career prospects!

Student ambassadors volunteer to help and support our school in many ways:

  • They represent the Academy at community events, open evenings and parents’ evenings.
  • They get behind fund-raising ideas, such as Red Nose Day and Christmas Gift Shoeboxes for local charities.  
  • They get involved with mini-business projects, giving them the opportunity to host meetings, mentor others and lead on activities.
  • They are there to help support staff, departments and community groups.

Being a student ambassador is great for your CV! Why?

It helps you develop skills that are extremely important when it comes to the workplace, such as communication, team-working and leadership skills. It will give you opportunities to interact with a variety of different audiences, to express your creativity and, above all, it will enhance your confidence.
