Sixth Form Leadership Team
Here at La Retraite, we value the students' views on how we can best provide support to every learner, making sure they are all given the best opportunities to develop into a wholesome individual.
Our Sixth Form Presidential Team are the voice of the students, as well as the ambassadors and face of La Retraite. They are excellent communicators who are articulate and confident individuals that uphold a standard that is expected and is attainable to all students.
Their duties vary from marketing La Retraite, being positive role models for the lower school, lunchtime supervisors, ushers for assembly line ups, delivering assemblies, and supporting staff where needed at events and with extra-curricular activities. These key skills developed through such roles will be tomorrow’s future.
A Message from Nicole, Sixth Form President for 2020-2021
“Family” – this is how La Retraite could be best described. Throughout secondary school and into the Sixth Form, we build a solid and nurturing environment where we all, students and teachers alike, take care of each other. Some of you may only join us for two years in the Sixth Form but you will be just as welcome into the Family. As a Sixth Form President, my role is to encourage everyone to just be who they truly are and to strive to become a better version of themselves, every day, through hard work, teamwork and most importantly faith. Through the words of Micah, we aim to ‘Act Justly, Love Mercy and Walk humbly with our God.’
At our Sixth Form, we celebrate our differences and through everyone’s individual stories, our fantastic teachers can create a positive learning community in which together, as a team, we overcome our obstacles and achieve our full potential. Even during these unprecedented times of lockdown, through the support and encouragement of our peers and teachers, we have built strength and resilience – qualities that will put us in good stead for next year and the challenges it may bring.
Words alone are not enough to describe our Family. Only those who join it can really appreciate all that it has to offer – from the amazing support to the academic success and extra-curricular opportunities. So don’t take my word for it. Come and see for yourself how La Retraite will help you achieve your true potential whilst making friends for life and having fun.
