The College Council represents the student voice at the highest level in the College. They meet once a week to discuss a range of issues affecting students. Each Academic Tutor group has a House Council representative who attends the weekly House Council meetings. Representatives from the House Council from across years 7-11 then attend the College Council. This makes sure that there is a clear flow of information to and from all students in our College. The College Council also presents regular assemblies to each of our five Houses to update on progress.
The College Council responds to issues raised by the students and work hard to bring about changes. Recently these have included: reducing the amount of litter around the College and encouraging students to take responsibility for their environment; reducing congestion on corridors by introducing signage to promote walking on the left; meeting with College Leaders and Catering contractors to expand and develop the range of food on offer as well as making clearer provision for food allergy sufferers with improved food labelling; improving social spaces and areas for students to use and breaktime and lunchtimes.
The College Council is also responsible for organising our charity days; this year alone they have enabled students to raise over £3000 for a number of different local and national charities including: Children with Cancer Group, World Wildlife Fund for Nature, Asthma UK, BBC Children in Need and Age UK.
In order to ensure cohesion in this student set-up, as well as making sure we embrace a wide spectrum of voice, we have the following organisation:
