Student Council

We believe it is important for students to have a voice in the academy, to have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills and to understand the principles of democracy.

We have a number of senior student roles for which students can apply. Successful candidates are selected by Mrs Gibbon and the academy senior leadership team.

Head Boy and Head Girl

Students in Year 10 can apply for our most senior student positions, which they take up in Year 11. Candidates must give a presentation as to why they should be selected, followed by a whole-school vote. The Head Boy and Head Girl are supported by Deputies.

In addition, a student head of year is appointed for each year group.

For 2017/18, our student leaders are:

Head Boy: Jack Saunders
Head Girl: Annalise Maitchell

Deputy Head Boy: Antoniu Damian
Deputy Head Girl: Casey Ogston

Academy council / Year Captains

Each of our year groups is represented by students as part of the academy council team. Each year group is led by Two Year captains.

The academy council meet weekly to discuss a range of topics, including teaching and learning, the academy ethos, standards and expectations and student well being. Year captains lead year group teams and work closely with their Head of Year. 

Students can apply to serve on the School Council. Prospective candidates are interviewed by teachers and Year 11 students before successful council members are appointed. Each year group has at least two members on the School Council.
