STUDENT LEADERSHIP

Students and pupils are central to all that  Plantsbrook School does. We know that, when  given the opportunity, young people can have a  profound impact on their school. Involvement in  leadership and student/pupil voice activities can  improve students’ and pupils’ learning as well as  helping them to develop the skills and traits  needed for success outside of the classroom.
