The School Council: Giving the school community a voice.
Our School Council is well established throughout the school and is an important aspect of school life which ensures that pupils have a say in exactly what matters to them the most.
1. To provide a forum for the exchange of views between pupils and staff on issues relevant to day-to-day life in school.
2. To provide the opportunity for students to initiate discussion in such issues and take action on related projects.
3. To provide an opportunity of the management/staff to seek feedback on such issues.
4. To promote mutual understanding among members of our community.
Our School Council is made up of one representative from each form in Years 7 – 13, each form elects their own form representative. There are also 3 staff representatives, 3 Head students, 3 Year Heads and an Assistant Head on the Whole School Council.
