Newtown School

Student Council

The Student Council helps to represent the students’ voice in the running of the school. The council has 24 members nominated by the students and they are joined by the Head Girl and Head Boy from the Prefects Council. There are two liaison teachers who facilitate and guide the council.

The council meetings are held regularly and they follow the procedures of a Quaker meeting for business with the sense of the meeting directing the decisions to be made. The Chair and Secretary of the Student Council will bring matters to the attention of the Principal and other Staff regarding their suggestions and queries.

Each year group nominates council members from 4 constituencies within the year. Boarder Girl, Day Girl, Boarder Boy, Day Boy.

Nominations for the Student Council take place on the final day of the Summer Term in June. The new council takes up its role at the start of the school year.
