School Council

The student council meet every week to discuss matters of importance to the running of the school community.

The student council is made up of the House Captains from each of the three houses: Mandela, Shakespeare and Jenner, with two students from each year group per house. These House Captains are elected for a full year, and their weekly meetings as a student council have clear agenda designed by school leaders to drive progress from the students’ perspective. Here, real issues are discussed and taken to SLT, issues such as rewards, attendance, activities and facilities that are available to the pupils. A recent example of the input of the student council is the rewards that can be purchased using Premium Banking Points that students accrue for excellence in lessons and around school.

The student council plays a vital role in the running, organisation and on-going improvement of the school and is a respected position of responsibility within our school. Please see the House Captain Job Description for a full breakdown of these responsibilities.
