As an ambassador, I would say our roles are to support all the students in the school, so despite being in the sixth form, we are here to connect the experiences of year 7’s all the way up to the year 13’s. This is why I am very excited, and also grateful, to be a part of this team; I know that we all have ideas that can really bring positive change to the school. One thing that is important to me as an ambassador is bringing more positivity surrounding the school culture. I believe that as a school we have the responsibility to learn, but also to use the opportunities school gives to enrich ourselves. I can be of benefit in helping students do this, by setting up more accessible ways to get involved in the community: in practices like volunteering; getting more people actively involved in black history month, international women’s day, and pride month etc; inspiring initiatives (as in the medical society that Tylar and I run) to start up more student lead clubs and activities. Personally, I really enjoy these things so I hope to bring a few of my passions to the role, as well as inspiring others to use their talents and hobbies to motivate them to make the most of their time at Beauchamps.
Being appointed as Lead Ambassador is both a privilege and opportunity that I am very grateful for, because I can represent and support all students within the school on a much wider level. It is highly important to me, and the Ambassador and Prefect team, that every student feels inspired and valued. So, we actively encourage every student to support their peers, so that they can reach their fullest potential and beyond.
As a Lead Ambassador, I want to use this role to ensure that every student feels they have a voice, a safe place to be authentic to themselves and feels supported and happy within the school. Each Ambassador has been focussed on creating new ideas to ensure that we can achieve this. For example, as one of the extra-curricular and enrichment leads, I want to make sure that every student can express themselves and enrich their interests, both academically and creatively, within Beauchamps.
It is vital to show our support for the wider community too and so, we would love to coordinate lots of events to help our local neighbourhood, such as charity events and volunteering.
As a Lead Ambassador, I really hope that I can make a change and leave a long-lasting legacy alongside the rest of the Ambassador team, to ensure that our school is filled with creativity, diversity and is an inspiring place to learn.
During my time at Beauchamps, I have had many opportunities and I hope to be able to encourage other students to fully utilise as many as they can. I was fortunate to be offered the opportunity to represent different departments and my form in the student voice which has made me understand more of the school dynamic as well as having an input in different subjects and topics within the school. While I have the opportunity to lead the student voice during my time in this role, I would like to create a student team where the representatives of all departments and forms have a voice and have their opinion heard. I believe this will help me develop my leadership skills and confidence. Also, working within the ambassador team will allow me to develop my teamwork skills.
Student Leadership and the Student Voice are important in making Beauchamps a positive place to learn. The students make up the majority of the school, and therefore it is vital that they get the opportunity to share their ideas and opinions on how the school should be run.
As a Senior Ambassador I feel that I can really make a difference to the school that I have been a part of for the last seven years. As well as being able to voice my own views, I can also act as a voice for others who may not be as comfortable speaking out. I hope that I can encourage more students to participate in extracurricular activities and help them grow in confidence as a member of the Beauchamps family.
Over the next year I wish to help Beauchamps High School further develop their local community links by assisting in charity fundraisers and outreach events.
My senior ambassador role within Beauchamps is within diversity. I feel diversity is of major importance in schools because diversity increases creativity, encourages open mindedness and provides a wealth of opportunities. It provides a foundation for an inclusive society that embraces differences and education is the key.
I believe that my role will help students to express their voice and seek support if needed. Being a part of Beauchamps means being a member of a huge family where both teachers and students are all working together.
Being part of Beauchamps will benefit me for the greater good because it will allow me to adapt and improve a variety of individual skills which includes maintaining and teaching the core values of diversity.
I am a part of the diversity team within the ambassadors. I intend to help educate the school community on what makes us different within the school premises; I believe that in this role I can help in not only creating a safe environment, but also in helping people become comfortable with who they are. I want the school to be a welcoming place for those who are from different cultures, who have disabilities and who are a part of the LGBTQIA+. I believe that this role will help me be more mature and help those in need.
The role of being an ambassador comes with many rewarding jobs and responsibilities. To name a few: to always look presentable and have high aspirations, to be representative of the student body, to be approachable and to have the ability to empathise with as many students as possible. Personally, I wish to focus on students’ mental health and wellbeing, and to pride myself on being an approachable and friendly character. One of my key roles is to focus on mentoring younger students as I feel I can provide advice and support across the school in a wide variety of areas. I am thankful to have the opportunity to represent Beauchamps as a senior figure and am grateful to be able to promote mental and physical wellbeing across the school.
As a Senior Ambassador, I would say that we represent every student as whole, however, we are still also students in Beauchamps who experience the same struggles and achievements as the rest. And since we are in our final year and most of us have been enrolled for almost seven years, I feel that we are the best people to give advice and just talk about school life; I want us to be there for everyone. I am heavily invested in the creative side of this school; it is the best thing the school can offer but I also feel as if the school can now offer more. I aim to encourage more students who have a passion in the arts to express themselves. I believe that I can help with that as my area of responsibility is extra-curricular and I feel this can really benefit the school. In fact, extracurricular has helped me in my own life; I used to have a stutter, making speaking to people difficult, but ever since I joined the Drama club, my stutter is basically gone. So, if this can help me, it can help you. I look forward to having loads of fun this year achieving this goal of mine and to helping help you become your true self.
