The Council has considerable influence and it would be rare for decisions to be made about the Sixth Form without prior consultation with the Council. The Council also manages a sizeable budget.
The Council consists of:
• Chairman/Chairwoman - elected by the whole Sixth Form in a secret ballot, after informal hustings.
• Head of Sixth Form (staff)
• One representative from each senior House
• Two Lower Sixth representatives if not nominated through Houses
• Two School Captains
Within the Council a secretary, treasurer and social secretary are nominated and elected. The social secretary is encouraged to form a social committee, to operate outside the Council, but is answerable to the Council.
