Leadership & Responsibility

Leadership & Responsibility
in School Life


Helping you excel

Your studies will be an important part of your life in the Sixth Form, but so too will all the other activities that go on.  Music, drama, sport, the Combined Cadet Force, Young Enterprise and the full range of House activities all offer excellent opportunities for you to get involved, to contribute and to develop confidence and leadership.

Positions of Responsibility

In the Spring term of your Lower Sixth year you will be invited to apply for a wide range of positions of responsibility. These currently include the Front Team positions of School Captain, Deputy School Captains, Heads of House and Head of Senior Boarding.

In addition each House also has its own Front Team who will organise the wide range of House events such as House Music and the Dixon Cup.

School Captains

The 2019-20 School Captains Molly Pickles and Charlie Norman are pictured below.

The School Captains play a very important part in the life of the school and leave a lasting legacy of their time at Adams when their final address to the school is made at the Leavers’ Assembly. Mr Hickey created a new tradition for the school by announcing that all future leavers speeches, from 2016 onwards, will be kept in Williams Adams’ recently re-discovered dispatch box for future generations to enjoy. Read the speeches of our two most recent former School Captains, Nihal Basha and Molly Chapman.
