School Council / Student Voice
At Fred Longworth every student votes for members of their form who will represent them on the Student Council. Each form is represented by 2 students who sit on a Year Council. That means that at least 100 students represent their peers on matters that are important to them. Each Year Council nominates 2 students to represent their year group on the School Council. The School Council is joined by the Head Boy and Girl as well as other senior students when needed.
The best way to describe the work of the Student Council is in the words of its members.
What does Student Council mean?
Freddie's Focus for Students
This is a weekly publication led by Head Boy and Head Girl with student input from the senior prefect team. It is emailed to all staff and students every Friday. Each week the publication contains a section on etymology ‘Root of the week’, ‘This week in History’, a problem to solve and an ‘Attitude to Learning’ question.
The students who lead ‘Freddie’s Focus’ ask for weekly Head of Year feedback aimed at motivating Year Groups and publicising achievements.
