Student Council

The Student Council acts as a voice for the student body. Its purpose is to engage with the School on issues relating to the student experience, access participation and provision and delivery at the School. Student Reps are elected by their cohorts and help coordinate events and ‘campus life’ opportunities for the school. They act as advocates on issues of student concern and communicate those issues to school staff.
