Pupil Voice

The Secondary School has an active group of pupils who work together as the Student Council. The Council consists of 12 pupils:

Year 7 representative
Year 8 representative
Year 9 representative
Year 10 representative
Four Heads of House (all Year 11 pupils)
The two Head Prefects
Two Sixth Form representatives

Pupils are elected to these position by their peers. This is a great opportunity for pupils to see democracy in action.

The Student Council meets in the final Friday of the month with the Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher. An agenda of items is tabled by staff and pupils in advance and discussion and actions are minuted.

Recent changes or actions instigated by the process have included:

• Changes to the queuing system at lunchtime
• Pupils awarding 5* classroom awards
• New football nets in the playground
• A working group of the Council volunteering to work on school values
