Students can run as candidates for College Parliament in May. They design a manifesto and each tutor group has a candidate put forward in the College Parliament Elections. Elections are held in line with local elections at the start of May. Every student has a vote and the turn-out is usually very high. Once elected, the College Parliament meet once a half term. The SFLT link student supports in running these meetings. A range of topics are discussed, College Parliament students put forward any ideas or concerns and these are fed back to Leadership Team and Progress Leaders. Any action taken is shared with College Parliament and the wider College. Most recently, students suggested having more outdoor seating areas and activities at lunch which have been ordered and are currently been used. Our parent support group FoSRR funded these benches, which students have been very grateful for.
