School Status

Young Leaders Academy School Status awards schools for their commitment to continually developing and progressing their student leadership programs. Each school that joins us is immediately recognised with a Bronze Award. Schools that meet the criteria and pass the assessment have the opportunity to progress on to Silver, Gold and Platinum status.

Your award can be displayed in the your reception area to show visitors you’re committed to student development.

Annual Conference

Each year we organize an Annual Conference where students, teachers, co-ordinators and parents, gather to see the incredible learning that has taken place in your school. The event is hosted by the school that has shown the most progress that year / previous year. The host school gets to share best practice and run workshops with other schools in the network. An amazing opportunity to learn and benefit.


At Young Leaders Academy we firmly believe that healthy competition is a great way to test your own ability and to improve your skills. Every so often we will develop a fun competition that students and schools alike can take part in, compete and win great prizes for themselves and their school. We invite schools from across the globe to take part making this a real enrichment opportunity for everyone taking part.

The ‘Reach for the Stars’ play leader training has transformed our playground. Before the Play Leaders were at odds on what to do. Now they’re excited and have a whole library of activities and the playground is buzzing because of it."
