The Student Council is an elected group of tutor group representatives that meets on a half termly basis to put forward ideas for school improvement, question school leaders and share ideas. It is led by the Head Boy, Head Girl and Sixth Form Leadership Team.
In 2015/16 the Student Council voted to adopt the name CBSC Power - Pupil Opportunity With Everyone Represented.
Recent notable successes include:
The new zebra crossing!
The student council was identified as a key player in the consultation process for the zebra crossing on Winchcombe Road
Reduced food queues
The student council pushed for the introduction of an additional till at Refuel to ease food queues and also suggested employing students to support. This has been put in place and queuing times have reduce by 50%.
An increase in printing allowance for KS4 and 5 students in exam season
Concerns were raised about the printing limit stopping students from being able to access hard copy past-exam papers and mark schemes. The printing limit has been increased for all exam groups.
Soft-bottomed shoes for exam invigilators
The clicking of high-helled shoes was proving distracting for some students so now all exam invigilators are asked to wear soft bottomed shoes.
The 2016-17 POWER council was elected in October 2016 and the first meeting is taking place on November 11th. The Principal, Mr Barber, will be joined by the Head Chef David Holdsworth to answer questions on school catering.
