What is a school council?
A school council is group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school.

"School council" means all kinds of school-based groups run by students, including student forums and youth parliaments.

What jobs are there?
Each year, every class will normally elect 2 representatives to be members of the school council.

The council will then meet to elect officers such as:

  • Chair
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer

In a larger school (more than 400 pupils) there may be separate year councils, with a large meeting of the whole school council once a term.
