The head and deputy head boys and girls from Ribblesdale High School, Clitheroe, represented their school at an event designed to enhance their leadership skills and unleash their potential as role models.

The Pupil Leadership Seminar at Burnley College Sixth Form Centre offered 15-minute talks and workshops designed to build confidence and understand leadership qualities. It focused on students’ expectations to be role models for their school and in later life.

The visiting pupils were invited to Burnley College Sixth Form Centre as a celebration of their selection as head and deputy head boys and girls, following their school’s recognition of their own outstanding achievements and commitment to hard work, reliability and ingenuity.

The event included Operating Theatre Live presenting hands-on demonstrations of anatomy and medical procedures students interested in medical and nursing professions.

Angela Donovan, head of A Levels at the Sixth Form Centre, said: “It was wonderful to welcome these high-achieving students to our Sixth Form Centre to learn more about enhancing their leadership skills. It was brilliant to see the group actively engaging with the afternoon’s activities, especially the Growth Mindset workshops which saw each of the visiting students voicing valuable opinions and enthusiastically taking part.

“It’s fantastic to see promising young people learning important skills that will shape their futures and I look forward to meeting with some of them again when they enrol as Burnley College Sixth Form Centre students.”
