Student Council

The School Council at Stockport School is an extremely important part of school life.  It provides opportunities for students to develop their leadership and communication skills and for students across the Key Stages to work together and support one another.

Meetings are held weekly at lunchtime in the LRC and all Forms across KS3 and KS4 are encouraged to send representatives. Each year students decide upon their priorities and then form small groups to lead on particular issues such as: supporting charities; promoting Fairtrade; considering student welfare or environmental issues. They are guided in their activities by one of the Assistant Headteachers but students are encouraged to be proactive and work together as a team.

Members of the School Council understand that they represent the student voice and over the years they have been consulted by school leaders, members of the community and a range of visitors about local, national and global issues as well as school related topics. 

Many School Council representatives go on to take leadership roles across the curriculum and they are often selected as ambassadors and prefects because of the skills they develop. Stockport School students are usually represented in local Youth Councils and many ex-students often return to promote further opportunities in the community.
