School Council

At Birchwood, we are very proud of our School Council.

Each Tutor group elects a boy and a girl to represent them at Year Council. Year Council meet every half term to discuss issues and ideas that important to them. Each Year Council then elects one boy and one girl to represent their Year Group at School Council. Overall, there are 95 democratically elected Council Members.

School Council is therefore a constituent of 12 members (2 per year group including the Sixth Form) and also has representatives from Fusion (Equalities), BLISS, SNAG and our Environment Group.

School Council Is chaired by the Head Boy / Girl from the student body for one year. The Principal attends School Council and Heads of Year oversee Year Councils.

The minutes of the most recent School Council Meeting are detailed below.

School Council and Year Council members are also some of our key ambassadors and were involved in Open Evenings, Events and appointing key members of staff.

Dr Ingate, Principal, believes that “School Council and student leadership are vital components in our school organization. They make a difference and see things from an important perspective. There were a number of significant changes we made as a result of the work undertaken by our elected student leaders. It is a privilege to work with them.”
