At Lawnswood we really do value giving students a voice and believe as a sixth form that students should be at the heart of everything we do. The aim of the Student Committee is to ensure that Sixth form students are represented at and contribute to all aspects of school life, from evaluating the quality of teaching & learning through to encouraging each other to seize opportunities beyond school life.
Our selection process is very vigorous but does provide students with the best experiences possible when moving their careers forward. From application forms, student hustings and interviews with senior leaders it really does test their abilities and enables us to appoint the best people for the posts.
Congratulations to the following students who were successful and have taken up the positions within their student committee.
