The Senior Student Team, led by the Head Boy and Girl, are a 6th Form team who meet weekly to discuss 6th Form and whole school issues. They meet termly with the Prefect Team, led by the Head Prefects from Year 11 and also support the work of the School Council.
The School Council consists of elected members from Years 7-11. It is an energetic body which meets with their year coordinators and relevant staff, receives a wide spectrum of student opinion, and makes recommendations regarding the working of the school. The council representatives have the lead role in communicating ideas and attend half termly council meetings with their Year Coordinators. Several members of our Student Leadership Team are on the Harrow Youth Council. Here they voice their opinions to a Borough and London-wide audience. Over the year we invite a number of guest speakers to talk to the Student Leadership Team, including the British Legion, Harrow Road Safety Officer, TFL, Transport Police, Metropolitan Police Safer Neighbourhood Team, St Luke’s Hospice and Age Concern. The Student Leadership Team often represents the school at events in school and in the local community.
Service to the Community
‘Service not self’ is the school motto, a motto which is vibrant and alive in the way we serve our community. At Nower Hill we strive to live by our motto. Over the last school year we raised a staggering £5,456 through our termly mufti-days and numerous charity events. Charity is a major strength at this school and a driving force behind our ‘active citizenship’ activities. Every student is expected to rise to the challenge and do something for others. In addition, we work hard to support our local community and have enjoyed facilitating activities such as the Christmas lunch for the residents of Betjamin Close and Milmans Day centre, daffodils for the elderly and a harvest collection which is distributed to the old and vulnerable within the area.
Our students play important community roles beyond the school. As members of the Harrow Student Advisory Group, they meet with other students from across the Borough to discuss issues. Students play a lead role in the Harrow Youth Parliament. Once a year they go to Westminster to represent Harrow in the National Youth Parliament
