SPORTS DAY: Our annual sports day will now take place on-site on Thursday 21st July. Competitors will be provided with information by the PE department

Student Voice

We are committed to listening to the views of students as the primary beneficiaries of education to provide each child with a first-class education. All students have a responsibility to provide helpful and honest feedback to the school so that we can help make it ‘great’.

Student Congress
Our school congress is made up of a group of students elected by their peers to represent their opinions and raise issues with the staff and governors in the school. The school council can also take forward projects on behalf of the students, be involved in improving the school, attend governing body meetings and contribute to staff appointments. Each form elects two students to represent them. It is from these year teams that our school congress is elected. 

Why do we have a School Congress?
Participation literally means ‘taking part’. As young people in Wales, the right set out in Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) entitles you to have a say in things which affect you. Your school council is a way of doing this but never forget that it can only be as effective as its members!

How do students benefit?
Students who join congress gain important skills such as listening to others, debating ideas and working as a team. Students have worthwhile opportunities to work in partnership with their peers and adults in order to make their voices heard.

Recent Actions
The school council played a significant role in the recent introduction of a new school uniform. The council not only co-ordinated the process but also communicated the decisions, met with staff and helped implement the new sixth form uniform; they have been instrumental in the redesign of the school menu, with a return to more 'traditional school lunches' and the introduction of a breakfast initiative. Canvassing the views of other students throughout the process, the congress has helped support students and families to ensure the correct decisions were made which ensured all students felt part of the process.
