Learning for Life


Outspoken is the voted title given to our school council. The group was formed to enable students and staff to discuss important issues affecting the Academy. The group meet each Wednesday lunchtime.

Last year the group was made up of representatives from all 14-19 classes plus 3S. At the start of each year, each class votes for their representative and they normally stay in the group for whole academic year.

Group members for 2016/17 are :

Staff: Janet Smith and Karen Hicklin.

Student members:

  • Group 1 Lauren and Lorna,
  • Group 2 Timothy and Liam.
  • Group 3 Ben and Kyle.
  • Group 4 Tadgh and Ashley A.
  • 3S Emily and Chloe.
