Fairfield Leaders

At Fairfield we develop leadership skills in all our pupils, equipping each individual for future learning and success. In Year 9 pupils have the opportunity to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award. During Life Skills in Year 10 and Year 11 all pupils complete the Archbishop of York Young Leaders Award.

Archbishop of York Young Leaders Award


The Young Leaders Award is a fully resourced leadership and character education programme designed to both enhance and form part of the school curriculum. It offers an exciting opportunity for your young people to:

  • Engage in new learning experiences
  • Grow in leadership, character and key life skills
  • Discover the benefits of helping others


As part of the Award students are empowered to ‘Be the change you want to see’, taking action and serving others in their community through different challenges. Students take part:

  • Individually in the community
  • Through team projects in the school community
  • Through outreach into the wider community on a local, national or global scale


Within Life Skills lessons pupils will learn to:

  • Explore and identify their leadership skills, character virtues and the importance of serving others
  • Investigate the stories and impact of great leaders in society
  • Examine the role they can play to bring unity to their communities, supporting and looking after the most vulnerable
  • Develop the skills required to lead others and work effectively in a team
