Each year, approximately 20 students across Years 7-11 are democratically elected onto the Student Executive and Student Leadership Team by their peers. These students put themselves forward and go through an application process and join the team where maturity and pride is essential. The process that students go through provides them with an understanding of democracy and preparing their own manifesto mimics parts of real life election processes.
Students elected attend regular meetings both together as a team, and with the Senior Leadership Team, every term to discuss any issues and potential changes. The Student Leadership Team also play an active role in key events at the academy such as open evening and parent consultation evenings. Students are not only involved with these events but also play an integral part of recruitment of staff including student panel interviews and tours of the academy.
