Student Voice

The Student Voice team was first established in September 2016. All students throughout the school were invited to apply to become part of the team and sat a vigorous interview process. 

Two students from each year group were then elected to represent their year in the Student Voice team. Here we gave each member of the team the choice of what role they would like to take on within the team. We currently have an Environmental, Sports, Technology, Facilities and a Teaching and Learning team that are working together to improve the school.

The team liaise with each of the form representatives of their year group where they are given ideas and new initiatives to ensure that the students have their voice heard in some of the changes to improving the school. The team then meet once a fortnight and discuss these ideas that are related to each role. 

Once an idea has been agreed on, the students then present their findings to the Senior Leadership Team, where they work together in order to give the students the resources to ensure the ideas are a success. 

Some of the successes that have already been implemented are:

  • Litter pickers to ensure the environment is clean
  • Picnic area with umbrellas for the grass patch outside of the canteen
  • Table Tennis and Foosball tables 
  • Social media pages that are linked to the website to regularly celebrate successes
  • New keyboards for the computers
  • Food tasting to design a new menu for the canteen
  • New toilets in the outside area
  • Access to the Gym after school for Year 10s
