Our students are actively encouraged to take responsibility for taking a leading role in the life of the school. The Student Council comprises students from each year group and was awarded a Silver PADL Award by Cornwall Council in 2012.
Passionate about making sure their voice is heard both within school and in the local community, the Student Council has strong links with our Head Boy and Girl who are Associate Members, a Link Governor and frequently reports to our Senior Leadership team, enabling regular two-way contact between staff and students at a leadership level.
Both Student Council and our other Student leaders, Including Music Scholars, Lead Learners, International Prefects and our House-based Prefects and Captains are very proud to be appointed to their roles following a rigorous application process. The Head Boy and Girl and their Deputies are influential leaders in the school – positive role models for younger students and superb ambassadors who, together with other school leaders, regularly provide feedback to the Head regarding key issues such as the appointment of new staff and representing the school locally, nationally and internationally. We are proud to elect student leaders from every year group in the school, building on the excellent practice of our Year 6 students at their Primary Schools and enabling our students to have a real impact in the development of the life of the school.
