Student Council

The role of the Hampton High student council is to serve, listen to and represent the views of all students from diverse backgrounds and communities. The council are keen to make significant contributions to improve the overall achievement of students and ensure they have a rich, varied and enjoyable experience; they are given the opportunity to express themselves, formulate arguments, represent the views of others and feedback to their peers.

Vision

Members of the student council discussed and agreed on the values which reflect their vision:

  • We are loyal
  • We are trustworthy
  • We are helpful
  • We are constructive
  • We are determined
  • We are friendly
  • We are supportive
  • We are here together
  • We are listening

How are the meetings organised?

Student council meetings take place every week. Form tutors are asked to discuss and debate key topics, including changes to uniform, the facilities and their learning and teaching, which are brought to the attention of student council representatives, via year group meetings. Each year council meeting is led by two student council members, with the Head of Year acting as a facilitator, to share the views which were raised from the discussion. The key issues are debated in whole school council meetings before students share their views with members of SLT and the governing body.

In addition, each member of the student council has been given a role of responsibility, ranging from Charity and Community Ambassadors and Anti-bullying Ambassadors to Learning and Engagement Leaders. Each of these teams is assigned a member of SLT whose keys responsibilities for school improvement are linked. They are able to work with the teams on a termly basis through projects to provide changes.

Student Leadership

We believe in the importance of giving students opportunities to develop and demonstrate their leadership skills. Our ambition is to develop a range of personal, emotional and social skills so our students are able to thrive as members of the community and succeed in the workplace.

Opportunities for leadership start in Year 7 and continue throughout the school. Students are asked to lead group work, to feedback on behalf of a group, and to direct small projects, as well as having an opportunity to represent their year on the student council.

As students’ progress through school, they will have the opportunity to:

  • coach others, including primary school children
  • represent school as match officials, in a range of sport and fitness activities
  • become prefects and Head Boy or Head Girl
  • sit on interview panels for new staff
  • leadership programmes and training
  • leading year group and younger students

Such leadership opportunities provide students with the chance to develop decision making skills, to understand the nature of commitment and responsibility, and to nurture in them heightened self-esteem, arising from earning the respect of their peers and staff.
