Student Leadership

We provide students with a wide range of opportunities to develop their leadership skills in preparation for life beyond Ryburn. There are a number of groups which allow our students to take responsibility and have an impact on the day to day running of the school, such as the student council and peer mentors.  These groups create a culture of teamwork and develop the interpersonal skills of all involved.

Many student leadership activities focus on the quality of teaching and learning within the classroom, supporting the school's culture of excellence.
