The Student Council is a representative body that meets on the last Friday of every month. The Student Council is made up of two representative students elected from each homeroom.
The purpose of the Student Council is as follows:
- Represent student feelings, opinions, and interests.
- Give students a share in decision making.
- Encourage students to participate in school activities.
- Help students understand and accept their role in school government.
Issues discussed at Student council meetings range from school jackets, the Coffee Shop in the new school, afternoon snacks for Secondary students and lockers for students at the new school.
The Student Council has an impact around the school. For example, due to issues raised by the Student Council, there is now an additional water fountain at the astro pitch, there is a wider selection of vegetarian options at lunch time and Secondary students now receive an afternoon snack on a Friday.
‘Students thrive on the leadership opportunities available. The student council plays a full and active part in making improvements in the school. The councillors feel listened to and know that their suggestions will be given full consideration. Their impact is evident across most aspects of the school; from their concern for car park attendants to wear high visibility jackets, to further improvements to the healthy meals on offer, to curriculum changes such as extra PE time for Years 10 and 11 and changes to the ICT IGCSE syllabus choice options.’ Education Development Trust (EDT) Accreditation Report, June 2017
