The Student Council is a body of students who act as the official voice of the student body, and who contribute significantly to the running of the Academy. They offer their opinions and ideas on a variety of matters and plan and deliver activities that help fellow students and the wider community. Student Voice is extremely important at the Bridge Academy. The Student Council encourages students to be active citizens by building self-confidence, respect for others, decision making and leadership skills.
The Student Council consists of our Head Students, Deputy Head Students, Senior Prefects (Year 11) and one Student Council Representative from each Tutor Group in Years 7-10. Head Students, Deputies and Prefects are selected through a rigorous selection process involving a letter of application and an interview with the Principal and other members of SLT. Student Council Representatives are democratically elected by members of their Tutor Group.
Head Students wear their unique black blazers with purple trim, giving them a clear, distinctive look around the Academy. All members of the Student Council can be identified by badges and ties, which they all wear with pride. Student Council meetings are held at least once a half term.
