Year & School Councils

 Students at break

At Heston we believe that if every student can have their voice heard, understood and responded to, they will become active participants in making sure that the School is the best it can be on its journey to changing lives and making sure that all students have a passion for learning.

About Year and School Councils

 Year 7 Council membersSchool Councils provide a basis for active learning of important life skills, such as speaking and listening, teamwork, emotional literacy, problem-solving and moral reasoning as well as providing an opportunity to boost self-esteem and self-confidence.  At Heston Community School our Year and School Councils are the voice of the students, enabling them to have the chance to share ideas and to understand that their opinions count.

 Year 9 Council members

We believe that students are key stakeholders in the education process and should contribute to the future success of their School. Their opinions are equally important and can help the staff and other stakeholders see things from a different perspective.

Representatives on Year Councils and the School Council are selected by their peers through a democratic process.

Our aim is that all members will:
