Student Council members are school leaders and student role models who guide and counsel their peers, helping to develop positive behaviour and values. In June and October, students, staff and the Head Teachers appoint the leadership teams for the International and National sections respectively. The Council is led by a president and two vice presidents and their service lasts for a year.
They meet to exchange ideas and address issues that genuinely concern the entire school community. Council recommendations are given to the Head Teacher for consideration and feedback.
