Student Council representatives meet regularly at and issues discussed are fed back to the Senior Leadership team for consideration. The Student Council also gets involved in a whole host of other activities including:
We believe that by listening to our students' views, we are empowering them for the future.
The Student Council organises seasonal events to raise money for a range of charities.
Eight Academy students were trained by Oxford Brookes University to play a lead role in observing lessons and providing feedback to teachers about improving learning. Students were then tasked with working alongside teaching staff on targeted projects to change the content and delivery of lessons.
The Student Council are part of the recruitment process for any new teaching position. They are responsible for drawing up questions and interviewing each shortlisted candidate. Their view is a crucial part in the final decision which is made for any teaching post.
Student Council Officers are responsible for the management and sanctions for the Student Council members. They receive data regarding student’s behaviour within the Academy and make decisions about their future role on the Council.
