Student Voice / Government
We know that many of our students have passionate views about their School, their place within it, and indeed about the world beyond. We want those passions to have a voice. We also know that many of our students have real leadership talents, and others are always looking for ways to develop their leadership skills. We want our students to believe, as we do, that democracy and the democratic process is the best way to get their voices heard, and their ideas put into action.
At Gable Hall we have both a student voice group (Years 7-11) and a sixth form leadership group (Years 12 and 13), including Head Boy, Head Girl and their deputies
Student Voice - The student voice group is comprised of subgroups such as LGBTQ+, Environment, Culture and Diversity and SEND. In their regular half termly meetings they discuss pressing issues which may be affecting Gable Hall.
They have made decisions such as:
- Leading the collection for donations to The Ukraine Appeal
- Ensuring that they are all Anti-Bullying Ambassadors
- Changing the playground environment
Student Government - Our Student Government are members of our school community that embody our aim to ‘be the best we can be.’
Student Government and Leaders were appointed following an interview process in which they had to detail their ambitions for the school and their peers.
