The William Allitt School

Student Voice

The Student Council is a well established body within the school. Form representatives from all year groups are democratically elected to represent their peers. Termly meetings allow students to contribute their opinions to key issues in the life of the school and facilitate the opportunity for students to raise topics and issues that are important to them. Students are taught to contribute their opinions respectfully and responsibly, with a clear focus on looking for solutions not problems.

 The strong tradition of effective student voice in the school is reflected in the regular success we have in supporting students to win seats at the South Derbyshire Youth Forum.

 

Have a look at what some or our past and present students have to say about their experiences at The William Allitt School:

 

“I have enjoyed the teachers the most at William Allitt because they are really supportive in all of your work, and also quite funny!”

- Year 7 student

 

“The school is very fun and you will learn many new things in all your lessons. There are many students and teachers that will help you if you are lost or stuck on your work”.

- Year 7 student

 

"I became a Senior Student because when I was in Year 7 they helped me make new friends and feel more comfortable. I hope that I can do the same for the current Year 7's".

- Year 11 Senior Student

 

"I became Deputy Head Girl to try and give something back to the school. I wanted to play a vital part in the leadership of the school and provide a voice for students".
