School Council


Our School Council is a group of students from each year group who have been elected by their peers to regularly meet to discuss and implement actions that can make the school a better place. School Councillors are responsible for ensuring that actions decided at meetings are carried out effectively.


Aims of The School Council

  • To be an excellent role model for other pupils and to demonstrate our school values, ‘Respect for All’ at all times.

  • To act as a forum for the expression of student opinion, contributing and sharing ideas at meetings.

  • To communicate student opinion to the school Administration for the benefit of the School as a whole.

  • To encourage student involvement in all student based activities.

  • To encourage and provide opportunities for student leadership and organisational abilities, in line with House Captain responsibilities.

  • To become involved in any initiatives that may lead to the overall improvement of the School.

  • To support student representation of the School wherever possible.

  • To encourage activities and behaviour which lead to a greater public image for the School.

  • To work towards a co-operative and harmonious school environment.
