At Wetherby the boys’ opinions about their experience of school life is listened to carefully by teachers. The School Council is the means by which boys can raise concerns or make suggestions about their experience of school life with members of staff. School Council membership is both rewarding in itself and respected in the school community.
Each Trib sends two representatives to School Council meetings which take place on average once per term. These boys – elected by their peers – are responsible for representing their fellow pupils’ interests in the School Council meetings. Suggestions and comments they make are considered by the Head Master and members of the Senior Leadership Team. Once the Head Master has considered the suitability of student proposals the Trib representatives inform their peers about decisions that have been made.
