The Futures Club train Hampton High students in leadership skills

Hampton High was delighted to welcome The Futures Club, a charity-led organisation founded by UCL and Cambridge university students, to host a training event in leadership skills for one hundred students. Students with roles of responsibilities from across Years 7 to 12, ranging from Peer Mentors and Anti-Bullying Ambassadors to Student Council members, gained valuable insight into the key qualities that make a strong leader, including effective communication, being able to think methodically and having strong organisational skills.
 
The session, which took place last  Friday, started with a game to demonstrate the importance of clearly communicated messages. Students responded well to the introductory activity which acted as a hook for the rest of the session. After having been guided through five key qualities seen in strong leadership, students were given a range of challenging scenarios which required tough leadership decisions. They were asked to discuss the various situations and then to present the actions they would take, linked to the core leadership values. The delivery of the presentations was very impressive, with students articulating their views in a matured and considered manner. 
 
The highlight of the training session was towards the end when we welcomed Sir Vince Cable, the leader of the Liberal Democrats party and MP for Twickenham, and Dr Nermeen Varawalla, the Head of Clinical Development at FTSE listed company BTG International and a pharmaceutical industry business leader and entrepreneur. Students were asked to pose questions about their leadership experiences which were answered openly and with candour. Our students gained valuable insight into the challenges faced in leadership roles, the moments of unequivocal pride and joy, and even learnt about the early school influences which led to their leadership journeys.
 
All in all, the event was a success with our students making connections with our visitors, asking for opportunities for work experience and linking up with the young people from The Futures Club to learn more about fundraising. 
 
We would like to thank them for a truly inspirational day.
 
Miss Taylor, Assistant Headteacher
