Each year, every class will normally elect two representatives to be members of the school council.

The council then meets to vote for officers such as:

  • Chair
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer

In a larger school, of more than 400 pupils, there may be separate year councils, with a big meeting of the whole school council once a term.
