Our Student Council is a great extended learning opportunity for students who like to organise events or get their views heard. We are constantly striving to further promote student voice as a positive force for change in our school and community.
Each Form Group has a representative and there is also a layer of Executive Student Council. All students involved with the Student Council meet with the Headteacher, on a Friday (via a rota basis), to discuss ideas for further improving the school.
The Executive Student Council meets at least four times per term to discuss whole school and community issues. The Executive Student Council is co-ordinated by Miss V Katsande and Mrs J Greaves, aided by Mr J Smith on Student Leadership and Mrs J Harris on Student Oracles. Other staff get involved too, such as the Director of Business; however, the school tries to ensure that the students are the driving force behind the school’s Student Council.
They are currently working on social events such as discos and movie nights; they are helping to shape a new rewards system and they stay alert to necessary campus improvements. They play a big part in the school’s charity work, including fundraising for worthy causes through non-uniform days.
At Sixth Form level there are Senior Students and a Head Boy and Head Girl, who help to raise the profile of the school; they do an important job of suggesting ideas for further improvement and acting as role models to younger school members. They tend to know the school, the staff and the local community very well and they are extremely helpful in terms of reflecting on what could be even better for future cohorts of learners.
