The Cockburn School Council is a powerful body that is consulted on many aspects of our school and plays a vital role in our journey – ‘Transformation to Excellence’.

Smart School Council 2022/23

Aims of the School Council
The aim of the School council is to provide a forum for discussion for students about issues which affect their school life. It involves every student in our school and means that everyone can learn use their voice, knowing that it is listened to and demonstrates how democracy works.

Student Elections and Representation
In September of each year, each tutor group will elect two representatives, preferably one male and one female. Form tutors will oversee elections and pass on the name of representatives to the Director of Year/Head of Year. The chosen Tutor Group Representatives will form the Smart School Council Team. At the first meeting, roles will be assigned to each student as outlined in the Smart School Council PowerPoint. Once elected, School Council members will remain in office for one year. The Head Boy and Head Girl; Deputy Head Boy and Head Girl and Student Ambassadors will also be represented on the School Council.
