3 Heads of School Council - Recruitment and retention Heads of School Council will all be Sixth Form students Former Heads of Council (previous year) can, where possible stay on to assist a new Heads of Council and share prior planning Each Council has two Heads of Council: 1)Chair 2)Administrative Heads of Council may be College Leaders as well as Heads of Council. However, this will be taken into account when looking at the number and caliber of people applying. It will be important to be fair, giving as many people the opportunity to lead as possible Year 12 and Year 13 are welcome to apply. There will be no quota. However, Year 13 who have not previous held posts, may, in some instances be given priority where a Year 12 may have opportunities in the future It will, in some instances be necessary for a Head of Council to leave their post by mutual arrangement with the school, depending on circumstances. In this instances, another Head of Council will be recruited based on previous applications / desire to lead

4 Application for post of Head of School Council Up to 1 side of A4, handed in to the Headteacher’s PA, based on you, your interests, your ideas for the school going-forwards, and why you want to lead a whole-school council. Other than that, it’s a blank canvas to let us know how you’d make an impact by taking on the role. Please include at least one member of staff who will be willing to provide a reference for you (not dissimilar to a job reference). There are 6 School Councils at present. However, applications may inform this structure going forward. For example, there may become a 7 th or 8 th Council, or some may be amalgamated, changed. In this way, the students drive the councils, rather than the other way around. School Councils will meet during Monday lunchtimes, so your availability for these will be an important factor. If you are heavily involved in other activities, you will have to make careful decisions about what you’re capable of taking on.

5 Here are some tips for what are seen as particularly desirable qualities in a Head of School Council, which you may wish to exemplify in your application. These are not exhaustive, and you will bring your own interpretation of what is required to the application process Chair: Reliability, consistency, enthusiasm, resilience, communication skills, ability to engage others, mediation and influencing skills Administrative: Reliability, Communication, note taking / typing up skills, personal organisation, record keeping, logistics
