Student Council

So far this year, student council have taken part in a visit to Durham Cathedral for Holocaust Memorial Day and a visit to The Police Headquarters. Both days were interesting and insightful. This term we are receiving a visitor to discuss with Student Council how we can become a more Eco friendly school which Students are looking forward to.
