Student Council

The Student Council contributes to the decision making process within the School, as we believe all students should have a voice in the development of their school.

Student councils are common in most schools but the Atherton High School student council will aim to deliver something different. The student council is elected based on what students can offer. It takes the opinions of students on board and endeavours to make positive change to the school environment. What makes our school council stand out is that it aims to make a difference in the wider community, not just in school, through volunteering and supporting projects and charities in the wider community.

The student council aims to improve the confidence and leadership skills of those involved and give them an active role in the running of the school. This level of enrichment will be something students can take away from Atherton High School and use to their advantage in the future.

“From seeing the head teacher playing football with the children on the yard, to staff sitting with pupils at lunchtime, everyone works together and there’s a strong feeling of belonging to part of something bigger than just a school”
