What is the School Council?

Every class has a meeting where pupils share their ideas and suggestions about our academy. The two class elected representatives bring the important issues to School Council meetings which are held frequently.

Everyone gets a copy of the minutes and suggestions are put forward to the Senior Leadership Team (SLT).
