Neston High students Megan Healey, Stuart Murphy and Abbie Cannon helped to deliver a workshop at SSAT’s national conference in Manchester.

SSAT (formerly the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust, now known as The Schools Network Ltd) is the largest and longest-standing school membership organisation which works with leaders, teachers and students to transform schooling.

The students were presenting on Learning through Student Leadership with members of staff, Rachel Hudson and Ruth Harkness.

The session was packed and saw SSAT’s chief executive, Sue Williamson, in attendance.

The students each spoke with great confidence on the student leadership initiatives available to them at their school.

Their impressive performance highlighted to all the benefit of the leadership activities they had done during their time at school.

The session ended to rapturous applause and the number of delegates who stayed behind to chat to both the students and staff was indicative of how well the session was received.

Chris Smith, student impact co-ordinator at SSAT, said: “The students were quite simply outstanding. They did Neston High School proud.”
