In an uncertain global political climate, the leaders of the future will inherit a challenging legacy.
Those leaders sit in our school rooms today all across the country.
So what are we doing to ensure they are equipped to charter these choppy waters?
A spokesman for Lichfield Cathedral School said: “As educators we have to recognise our responsibility in this regard.
“The Lichfield Cathedral School mission describes four core principles of Learning, leadership, Faith and Service and the school’s unique Ethical Leadership Programme encompasses all of these.
“In a rapidly changing world our young people need the strength and resilience to follow their own convictions, doing what is right because they know it to be so.
“As for the inherent difficulty with the notion of ethical leadership, in other words the definition of ‘right’, the answer for the school is a relatively easy one, borne of
its Christian foundation and strong values that provide much guidance in this regard.
“The Lichfield Cathedral School pupil will be on their ethical leadership pathway from early years through to Sixth Form.
“The duties and responsibilities embedded in the school experience are designed to provide ongoing opportunities for development of these skills.
“Pupils are given increasing levels of responsibility and ultimately they are accredited externally providing a superb foundation for entry into higher education and employment.
“Cathedral School pupils are book monitors, playground buddies, mentors, chapel stewards, sports leaders, prefects, librarians, heads of co-curricular societies,
leaders of a community radio station and Fairtrade Ambassadors.
They are Heads of House and Heads of School, captains of sports teams and musical and dramatic ensembles, they are Duke of Edinburgh participants and they are all glorious individuals with a clear sense of what is right.
“It is a privilege to work with such pupils and play a part in securing a brighter future – the school’s teachers look forward to seeing just how high today’s youngsters can soar.”
