Student Leadership

The Magna Carta School holds the belief that our students of today are the leaders of tomorrow. We believe that effective relationships are promoted through consultation, collaboration and open communication and as a result have developed a Student Council that ensures that the voice of the students is heard.

Purpose of the Student Council
The purpose of our student council is to encourage students to get involved in issues that concern them in and around school. As a council, we focus on listening to the views of students and we take responsibility for some aspects of school life. Put simply, the student council is a force for improving The Magna Carta School.

Having a Student Council helps us to improve aspects of our school community by exercising our rights and accepting our responsibilities. Our discussions and decisions will help to inform improvements to the school environment and our learning.

The student council is overseen by Assistant Head of School Mrs L Stewart. It draws representatives from each of the tutor groups in Year 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11. On a half termly basis, the student council will meet to discuss business focusing on areas such as rewards and sanctions, teaching and learning, student support, the community and extra-curricular provision in the school.

We encourage students to join in and have their voices heard.
