The School Council is an elected body consisting of two representatives from each year group Y7-Y11. Elections take place in October/November, with pupils campaigning during the week building up to voting day. On voting day, pupils can vote at any time before school, after school and at break and lunchtime, in the Hall. Once elected the School Council meets every week and discusses any issues that arise, including exploring a range of projects around the curriculum. There are also Suggestion Boxes for pupils to communicate their ideas to their representatives.

The School Council has:

  • Provided a judge for the First Give Competition.
  • Contributed thinking behind the new planners and Show My Homework.
