School Council

School Council is a key component of the student leadership of the School.

It is composed of elected representatives from each year group in the School and run by a committee of Sixth Form girls who are elected each year.

The School Council meets every fortnight and provides a forum where issues can be discussed, suggestions put forward and thoughts of each year group on particular topics heard. The Council also meets with the Director of Students to talk through the points raised and provides regular feedback to the School in assemblies.

During 2014/15 Council made a big contribution to the shape of the new School Behaviour Policy, consulted with the School about uniform and reviewed school meals with the School’s Executive Chef.
