The School Council is an important part of the student voice, it includes up to 24 students – four from each year group, plus four extra from Year 11. Students can apply independently and then are voted in by their year group.
Year 11 students chair the meetings and produce the agenda and minutes.
Issues discussed by the council originate from the tutor groups and are shared with the Year Council before being taken to the School Council. The School Council discuss ideas and give feedback via the School Council reps at Year Council meetings and the Form Captains take this information back to the tutor groups.
The School Council is divided into four committees – Environment, Curriculum and Policies, Student Welfare, and Events. The School Council is also responsible for choosing the charities that the school will support through the year.
We will meet once a fortnight.
