Our student voice…proud and passionate, supporting our academy
Our Student Council is the inspiring student voice of our academy. It consists of two students per Form Group and, chosen from these are, four Year Councillors representing each Year Group.
Each half-term the Council debates and discusses issues which are important to students as determined by the Form Councillors. It makes recommendations to the Headteacher around school issues such as; school improvement, teaching and learning, rewards and whole school policies.
Our Council is a vital part of our school community. In recent years, our Student Council have:
