Being  6th Former at Northease

When students join Year 12, they will experience a more informal life than when they were at school.   They can wear their own clothes, allowing individuals to accept responsibility for their own personal development and independence. 

Students are expected to take an active role in school life and set an example that younger pupils can aspire to.  Such leadership and mentoring roles include running lunchtime clubs, café and paired reading with younger pupils.
