School Council

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

School Council is run by Sixth Form students with members from throughout the school. They have three sub-committees: environment, sport and digital that have their own initiatives and report back to the main body. School Council meets once per half-term for a working lunch to discuss a different topic each time. Recent topics have included feedback on the Personal Development programme, ideas for how we support diversity in school and respectful behaviour on the buses, and discussion about the role of Chapel. The Director of Students sits in on each meeting and School Council often invite other members of staff with responsibility for each area so that they can discuss issues personally with the staff responsible.

In recent times, School Council has informed changes in the PE curriculum and the choices for the new décor in the Jean Duffield building.
