Garforth Academy Student CouncilThe Academy has an elected Student Council comprising two students from each Year Group Council. There is a separate 6th Form Council. The Student Council has a Manifesto that covers a wide range of issues including:
- Improving facilities in school
- Developing links with one of Leeds' twin cities, Durban in South Africa
- Security in school
The Student Council meets regularly after school and is supported by staff from Leeds Youth Service. Students can also stand for election to Leeds Youth Council where they meet and work with other young people from High Schools across Leeds, to represent the views of 11-18 year-olds, city-wide. Additionally, two of our Student Councillors have also served as members of the UK Youth Parliament and have represented the city at a national level.
