Student Voice

At Chase Terrace Technology College we value the opinions and input that our students can have. School Voice is a prominent feature of school life here, and representatives from each year group work together on projects such as uniform, catering, environmental issues and charity events.

Each year, students send in letters of application to be on the school council, or “Student Voice” as it is now called. There are two spots available from each year (7 – 11), so competition is always high. Students then meet each week to discuss any current and upcoming projects. The Student Voice is run by the students, with Sam Gillion, one of our 6th formers taking the lead, however they are fully supported by Mrs Thombs.

We are constantly looking for students who will be committed to this role and contribute to the wider school community.

Aims and Objectives

 “All young people – irrespective of ability, personality, race or class – should feel valued and safe within an inclusive and caring school community throughout their school years. Schools with an ethos of mutual respect develop into caring communities where each individual understands that they can make a valuable contribution...” (Teddy Gold, Honorary director. Schools Councils UK, June 2000: taken from “Primary School Councils toolkit, 2000”, page 5).
