You said: We did:
We want more seating outside. We used money from the clothing bank collection to purchase three additional benches to go outside in the school grounds.
We would like to go on more trips. Activities days are being planned for the summer term which involve a variety of trips, all departments are being asked to organise trips and visits as part of the complementary curriculum.

Year 11 went to FrightNight at Thorpe Park after successfully campaigning for more trips!

We want to support charities. We have helped you organise and run many charity events including Jeans for Genes non-uniform day, Macmillan Coffee Morning, Children in Need Bake sale, Festive Jumper day for Save the Children and Film Night for the Ellenor Foundation with many more events coming next term. 
We would like more shelter outside. We will be planning fundraising events in order for this to be possible.
We would like more healthy food options in the canteen. A group of students met with Chartwells to talk about what they would like to see added and changed on the menus.  The menus have been changed as a result of this discussion. We’re now moving on to tackle vegan and vegetarian options.
