The School Council Executive 2017 - 2018
Hello our names are Amber, Grace, Sia and Emily. We are currently in Year 10 and are your new Student Council Executive for this academic year. We are really excited to work with both students and staff to create the best learning environment possible. Some of the things we hope to accomplish this year are:
- To continue to improve food options and labelling
- To help adapt the end of year reward trip and to give out more small rewards to KS3 students
- To have more outside sheltered areas for students
- To carry out more charity work especially for smaller charities
As a team we aim to make positive contributions that will benefit our school, its students and the community around us. We look forward to working with you over the coming year.

Student Council Training
We had an amazing time at the student council training on the 26 September and would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who attempted and threw themselves into every task and opportunity presented to them on the evening. It was a great way to bond and learn from each other. This has only made us more excited for the year and confident in the great advances we will be able to make throughout the school. Hearing your initial ideas has assured us that we will be able to make immense leaps in making our college an even better place.
At the training we discussed exactly what makes a successful member and how we can all strive to achieve this. The representatives then had the opportunity to feedback on ideas they have so far received from their tutor groups.

Spring Term Update
As the Student Council Executive we have had a very successful term. Firstly, we held our Student Council meeting with the representative from each tutor group and received lots of useful feedback which we were able to discuss with the Mrs Merrills.
As part of the meeting, Dr Grace Sykes, from the University of Leicester, came in to talk about a chance to take part in a Cancer Research survey about attitudes towards vaping. During the meeting we also thanked all of the representatives for their contribution to the Laura Crane Christmas present appeal. The charity was very grateful and have sent us a thank you booklet.
Last term we helped to promote the Youth Parliament Election, which was very well-attended.
We held our annual “Kindness Week” at the end of last term. We chose to focus on the theme of self-care as it felt relatable to all years, particularly Year 11 who were going through mock exams at the time. This theme was popular with students and as part of this, each student received a self-care checklist as well as partaking in activities throughout the week.
