How can we help our youth to develop their leadership skills and behaviours? When pupils are given leadership roles in school they mature quicker. Yet, pupils perceive leadership as a relational process rather than solely involving someone in a formal badge-wearing position. To explore pupil leadership perceptions and its relationship to wellbeing and hope, sense of school membership and academic self-regulation, a research study was conducted at Sevenoaks School by Dr. Ceri Sims (Chartered Psychologist, Buckinghamshire New University) and Paul Thompson (Head of Geography, Sevenoaks School, Kent - pictured). The survey was completed by just under 250 pupils.
