The School Council at St Mark’s
The School Council at St Mark’s is composed of 2 students from each Year group from Years 7 - 13. The students on the School Council are also members of their Year Council and represent their Year group at meetings. The School Council at St Mark’s demonstrates that ‘student voice’ is valued.
In June of each academic year, students in Years 7 -1 0 are able to stand for election for the Year Councils for the new academic year. If successful they will also have the opportunity to be on the School Council. PPLs will make the final decision of who represents their Year group on the School Council. In September the new Year 7 students and Year 12 students will also have the opportunity to elect students onto their Year Council.
The School Council is chaired by two students from Year 13 who have applied for the positions through the Sixth Form Positions of Responsibility process. They are supported by an Assistant Headteacher who supports the meetings. The School Council meets at least once every half-term.
