A High Performing Specialist Academy for Technology & Applied Learning

College Council

Structure of the College Council

From each Year Group Council, 2 representatives are chosen to sit on each of three sub-committees which mirror the Governors’ committee meeting structure. Issues from Year Council meetings are referred to the appropriate sub-committee and actions/developments are communicated between these groups. The activities of the student sub-committees are aligned to the work of the Governing Body therefore opening up the possibility of a widening of student influence on decisions taken at meetings of the relevant Governors’ Committees.

Student Welfare Committee

This committee looks at rewards, sanctions, leadership and related themes.

Supported by Mr Cleary (Assistant Principal) and Mr San Emeterio/Mrs Edwards (Progress Leaders).


Student Curriculum Committee

This committee looks at learning and teaching, student research and related themes.

Supported by Miss Crocker (Vice Principal), Mr Webster (Senior Assistant Principal) and Mrs Wright (Assistant Principal).

Student Resources Committee

This committee looks at facilities, publicity, charities and ECO issues.

Supported by Mrs Warren (Business Manager).

Student Executive Committee

Two student members from each of the three sub-committees plus the Head Boy and Head Girl form the Executive Committee. They coordinate activities and monitor progress and feedback to SLT and Governors.

Each group has appropriate Governor and 6th Form representation. By linking members of the SLT to each committee it ensures those that have the authority to 'make things happen’ play an active part, with students, in ensuring progress on the key issues identified.

Dates for meetings are set in the calendar with a Year Group/Sub-committee/Executive committee cycle of meetings occurring each half term.
