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 Tuesday lunchtime for 30 minutes. Every alternate Tuesday, the group do the recycling for each classroom, including the office and staff room.

The group is made up of representatives from all 14-19 classes, and some pupils from KS3. At the start of each year, each class votes for their representative and members can change termly or stay the full year.

We are involved in fundraising, special interest days, and help out in assemblies. We sometimes work with charities from outside school. Members provide a voice for their classes

Staff members are Janet Smith and Karen Hicklin.

Student members:

Emily, Joseph, Liam, Elliot, Tyler, Chloe, Nathan, Jasmin

In October we did fun activities with pumpkins.

Early November we helped sell poppies in the Academy.

Also this month Outspoken have helped organise fundraising for Framework and Children in Need.

In February one of our parents is running a half marathon for a heart charity. Outspoken are helping raise money by designing and selling cards, also asking Helen to bake heart shaped biscuits to sell.

Outspoken have taken on the responsibility of collecting recycling from the classrooms.

This year we are focusing on providing new bikes for students in the junior playground, and providing shelter and seating for the senior area. Funding and applying for sponsorships have been discussed. Hopefully further progress can be reported soon.

Towards the end of March a theme day for World Water Day is being arranged - more details to follow.
