The School Council is an important part of the student voice, it includes almost 24 students – four from each year group, plus four extra from Year 11.
Year 11 students chair the meetings and produce the agenda and minutes.
Each tutor set selects a boy and girl as their Form Captains, these students then belong to the Year Council. Each year group selects two boys and two girls form this group (or any other that feel they could make a contribution). These four students attend the School Council.
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, Policies and Events. The School Council is also responsible for choosing the charities that the school will support through the year.
