School Council

Each Form Group elects a representative for the Year Group Council.  The Year Group Council meet every half-term with the Year Head and each representative brings ideas and opinions from their Form Group to the meeting.  

Two representatives are elected by the students on each Year Group Council to attend School Council as Year Group representatives.

The roles of the members of School Council include:

  • To discuss any issues raised by students with Miss Marshall (Asst Headteacher).
  • To act as a consultative group for school developments.
  • To take part in senior staffing appointments.
  • To help organize fundraising events for the school.
  • To support school community events

Members of the Year Group Councils and School Council are recognised by the badges they wear.  There is also a list of their names displayed on the School Council notice boards.

Students who would like to become involved in School Council should speak to their Form Tutor or Miss Marshall about representing their Form Group/ Year Group.
