The aim of Student Voice in Amery Hill is to empower our students to express their views and opinions on their own educational journey. It provides them with a platform to reflect on and improve the school experience for the whole Amery Hill community and beyond. Our current Student Parliament consists of six students each from Years 8, 9, 10 and 11 and an Ambassador from each tutor group in Year 7.
Student Ambassadors have been working hard over the course of this year representing the student community of Amery Hill. They spearheaded fundraising for YoungMinds, and encouraged student participation in the Hampshire Youth Parliament elections as well as the annual UK Youth Parliament's Make Your Mark campaign. In November the whole Parliament met and had a question and answer session with Damian Hinds (MP) and they have been working closely with the Eco-Union and our school LGBTQ+ group, Prism.
We currently have focus groups looking at ways to improve the school environment, such as renovating some of the outdoor spaces and refreshing the corridor artwork. In the final term of the school year, our Student Ambassadors will be starting to look into how students see the school as a community, with the aim of building upon this for the benefit of all.
