Student Voice

The Student Voice Steering Group provides overall guidance and direction for student engagement in quality enhancement activities, including student consultation, student representation, partnership initiatives and student feedback. It acts as the Steering Group for the Student Engagement Project.

The Group is chaired By Business Manager and representatives are taken from every Year group.


  • Providing oversight and guidance to ensure the effectiveness of activities that engage students in quality enhancement across the Academy.
  • Provide ideas and activities that enhance the Christian ethos of the school community and provides support for students
  • Monitoring the effectiveness of student engagement in quality enhancement, proposing and overseeing implementation of changes as required.
  • Developing mechanisms for ensuring student views coming from a range of formal and informal channels of engagement in quality enhancement are joined up, that they have an impact on what the Academy does, its decisions and operations, and that students told how their views have affected decision-making, and if not why not.
  • Promoting a culture of listening to and acting on the student voice amongst students and staff.
  • Developing and promoting partnership initiatives between students and staff.
