The Blenheim High School Student Council is a large and significant part of the school. Consisting of 24 democratically elected members, the students meet as a Year Council (once per half term with their Head of Year) and a Whole School Council (two weeks later) to discuss a range of key areas from teaching and learning to student wellbeing, charity ideas to canteen menus.
Elections are held at the start of each academic year. Each Form Group has a male and a female Form Captain, and it is from these students that the Council is elected (four per Year Group). Meetings are chaired by our Head Girl and Head Boy. They are responsible for asking the Council Representatives for agenda items when planning their meetings, and feeding back what has been discussed at each meeting with the whole school. Members of the Leadership Team and Governors often visit the meetings to listen to the student voice on new policies and ideas, and this is taken into consideration prior to their publication. The Student Council has its own budget to spend each academic year, and this can be increased by fundraising.
