Yesterday we were very fortunate to be joined by Hayden Taylor, an ex student and current Governor, who led a session on public-speaking for our Prefect Team. Hayden is the founder and Managing Director of UNLOC which is a student enterprise organisation that provides opportunities for young people to develop their skills as leaders, future entrepreneurs and leads collaborative student voice within Portsmouth.
This was a valuable experience for our students who are developing their leadership skills. The prefect team are leading this year’s School Council through a number of sub-groups and are driving real change within the school that is student led. This morning’s talk, as part of the city-wide Teach Portsmouth Week, focused on leadership and public speaking skills which will support the prefects to develop their own skills.
The prefects said that it was “inspiring to meet someone who went to our school who is now running such a big company and making change happen.”
