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.
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.
Head Boy: Jack Saunders
Head Girl: Annalise Maitchell
Deputy Head Boy: Antoniu Damian
Deputy Head Girl: Casey Ogston
The School Council represents the whole student body and meets regularly to discuss issues. It reports to the staff heads of year and key stage heads.
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.
