Welcome to Lathom High School from the Student Leadership Team Lathom is a wonderful community where everyone is supported to reach their full potential and discover their aspirations no matter how big. We have outstanding facilities which include excellent sports facilities, a library and fully equipped classrooms. As part of the Student Leadership Team, our role is to ensure that everyone is nurtured and their views are expressed to help make the school an even better place. You will recognise the team from our badges which state our specific roles. High Expectations At Lathom we have very high expectations that students are expected to follow at all times and these include full uniform and equipment and outstanding behaviour in and around the classroom. As students of Lathom we are expected to be PROUD in everything we do to ensure we receive the best learning experience possible. Overall, we wish you the warmest welcome as you join Lathom and hope you enjoy the next step in your education. Also a school needs a middle ground between teachers and students. This helps to create a sense of community that all great schools such as ourselves require. It is essential for a school to have a group of students to voice the opinions of their peers. However, there is also a need for ambassadors for the school to be role models for the year groups below them. It is an honour to be able to support the teachers. It is also an honour to feel such a sense of community, love, friendship and a strong bond between students and also amongst students with their teacher. Student Team Leaders The school has a strong ethos of community and student voice. This is achieved by having a student led school council that acts as the student voice. The school prides itself on allowing students to exercise its democratic rights and encourages students to make a positive impact to daily school life. The Student Team Leaders of Lathom High School represent their peers in official occasions, and are the point of reference between students and staff.

In all activities, students will understand what makes a performance effective and how to apply these principles to their own and others’ work.
