Pupil Voice at Sir William Robertson Academy

Student Council and the SWRA Elections take place in September.

At Sir William Robertson Academy all pupils have a right to have an input into their education.  We do this through the School Council and the Pupil Voice structure:

Head boy girl Group with MC and BLHead Boy and Head Girl

Every year, a Head Boy and a Head Girl will be elected from Year 12 to represent the whole student body.  They will see their role through into Year 13 and hand over to the next incumbents the following year.  This is a position of great responsibility; the Head Boy and Girl will chair Pupil Voice meetings and meet with the Senior Leadership Team and Governors, ensuring that student voice is represented in key decisions and developments within the Academy. The Head Boy and Head Girl represent the Academy and student body at a variety of public functions during the year, including prospective Parents’ Evenings for Years 7 and 12 and Awards Evenings.

House Captains

There are four House Captains, one each for Simla, Dragoon, Chitral and Lancer.  The House Captains are elected from any Year Group and will communicate the views of pupils in their House at Pupil Voice meetings.  Working closely with their Head of House, the House Captain offers much to the life of pupils across the school, organising House competitions and events with their team of Base Captains and encouraging participation in competitions etc.
