Student Voice

“Being on the School Council, I have developed my public speaking skills and grown in my ability to listen to others’ ideas and opinions.” Student

Students need to be empowered to propose and develop enterprising ideas to support the learning of all. As advocates for their own and others’ needs, students can increase their confidence and motivation and develop their leadership skills.

Our elected School Council plays an extremely active part in school life. It is the responsibility of the Council to initiate ideas to support students’ well-being and learning, respond to proposals from the Senior Leadership Team and raise issues and concerns. School Councillors also interview teaching candidates and represent the school at different events. Two members are elected to stand for the Merton Youth Parliament. Recent projects include a new meal deal in the canteen,  an equality action group, a road safety campaign with Transport for London and an end to ‘One Use’ plastic campaign.
