At The Archbishop Lanfranc Academy we understand the importance of our students’ views and opinions, providing an opportunity for discussion on important issues through House Councils and the Academy Council. Council members are chosen by their peers in elections conducted in September of each year.
Each class democratically elects two students to represent their house within the year group. The role of the house representatives is to consult with their peers over issues that arise at House Meetings, reporting back to their class at the earliest opportunity.
At the first meeting of each House Council, pupils elect two students as the House Captains and choose a charity they wish to support that year. Once the House team has decided on their main discussion points, the House Captains meet with the Academy Council, comprising of the Head Boy, Head Girl and their deputies. The Academy Council minute their meetings and take the top points to the Senior Leadership Team to look to make change (where desirable) to the Academy.
