At Victory, we are passionate about giving our students a voice in shaping the future of our academy. Each Head Ambassador leads a team of students, specialising in an area of the academy.
Head Ambassador for Raising Achievement
Every single person is individual, with unique goals they want to fulfil and barriers which they strive to overcome.
Through being a Head Ambassador in the Raising Achievement area, I feel I have been given the opportunity to help motivate people to fulfil their goals and perhaps even to further endeavour in their targets.
Head Ambassador for Anti-Bullying
Everyone deals with bullying, and this can have a very heavy impact on their school life. Not only this, but it can also go home with them via cyber bullying. Because of the major effects bullying can have on anyone, let alone a student.
I became the Head Ambassador for Anti-bulling so I could do my part in helping students that are being bullied and change attitudes towards it. As well as endeavouring to support students, I also want to take my opportunity as Head Ambassador to raise awareness of the effects it has.
Head Ambassador for STEM
I have a keen interest in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics field and hope to one day work in this field.
I am passionate in encouraging girls, due to their underrepresentation, as well as getting more people involved; as the technology of the world advances, we need more innovative and critical thinkers discovering new ways to improve existing components of the world in order for the world to progress.
Head Ambassador for Transition
I am very passionate about Transition, it’s a vital part of a students’ life in order to reduce the stress of going up to secondary school. My aim is to make Transition less chaotic – as we need to make it flow as well as possible for the Year 6s.
I am also using this role to help myself and some others complete the INVOLVE project – a project where we have to organise and host an event/experience. This is part of the Villiers Park Scheme, which I have been enrolled in at the school. Villiers Park is a scheme that helps young people get the opportunities they need which will help then to excel. By utilising my role as a Transition Ambassador, I can help myself and others complete this award.
We have also appointed a range of junior ambassadors to support their work – especially the induction of new students to the academy.
We are very proud of the work our students do to support one another.
What is it like to be an Ambassador?
Being an Ambassador and representing the school is a privilege and an honour that I’m very proud of. As an Ambassador, you are a role model for every single student and visitor in the school; by showing your respectful behaviour and obedience of the school rules and doing kind actions. Within this role, there are several responsibilities, such as: keeping an eye on all students to ensure their welfare, being a good listener so that anyone can approach you and share their problems, reporting issues to staff, for example, behavioural issues, interviewing teachers, giving visitors a tour, attending meetings, representing student views, etc. This is a very rewarding role, as you’re appreciated by students, staff and visitors, which provides you with extreme personal satisfaction. This will always make you smile and help you gain invaluable skills that will be useful for the rest of your life.Haris, Year 9
When I first heard that I could be a Student Ambassador, I was really excited. A chance to contribute to the school and support Year 7! I would never have turned it down. Writing my application took a while, but eventually I finished it and submitted it. A couple of days later, I got my appointment slip – I was pretty nervous at the time and anxious to know if I would get through On the day of the interview, I was really nervous, but the interview didn’t actually go too badly. As soon as I left Ms Le Fur’s office, I let out a sigh of relief. Now that was over and done with! After school, I was called back; there were about seven or so other students sitting around the table as Ms Le Fur announced to us that we had made it as Junior Ambassadors! I was super proud of myself for achieving such a thing. We now have meetings every Thursday and we have got our silver trims sewn on so all the Year 7 students know they can come to us if they need anything – I have already signed up to help at two Parents’ Evenings! All in all, my experience of becoming a Junior Ambassador has been completely awesome!Charis, Year 8
