Led by our elected Sixth Form Council (see below) our Student Voice is centred on the whole School Council. This body of students, selected from every tutor group in the school, meets on a half termly basis. Students discuss issues specifically linked to their year group.
In addition, students choose a roll on a whole school group designated to review a particular topic. Examples include charity, community, education, behaviour, extra-curricular and rewards. Although a new initiative, we are very excited by the development of this council which has included some highly effective training and opportunities for student voice beyond the school boundaries.
The Sixth Form Council is an elected body of students chosen by their peer group and by staff. Led by the Head Boy and Head Girl who are supported by Deputies, they run a team of ministers with a range of responsibilities that extend across the whole school.

Our excellent Council represent the College at a range of whole school events and engage positively in our close community by delivering support for the elderly of the community. This is evidenced by the pinnacle of the Council achievement, a self funded party at Christmas for the senior citizens of our community.
