School Council

 

“Committed to representing you”

School Council is incredibly active within the school community at AGGS. Our school ensures that our students have an active role to play within the school and that our voices are heard and acted upon. In addition to our year group meetings we also have an Executive School Council with members from Year 7 to year 13. Our Executive School Council structure provides continuity and communication between year groups and ensures that our students are working together on collective aims. Leaders from Executive School Council feedback to senior leaders regularly to ensure consistent communication between staff, students as well as outside agencies such as Sodexo.

After our Year 13 School Council Leaders are chosen the Year 12 leaders apply for their roles. For Year 7 to year 11 we hold e-elections just before October half term ensuring a democratic process throughout. Candidates must write their manifesto to share with form peers before the election process takes place.

We promise to always voice your opinions because we are committed to representing you.
