School Council

Our committee, which involves students from all year groups, meets regularly to discuss plans for the upcoming terms, arrange events and fundraisers, and to provide feedback on general school issues.

Our meetings are also attended by members of the academy's senior leadership team.

On this page, you will find the latest updates from our group and the minutes from our most recent meetings.

This year the School Council will be incorporated into the house system and will have House Council Meetings instead of Year Council Meetings.


1)    A huge £5229.01 was donated by students and staff at Cornwallis Academy during the last academic year. All proceeds have been split up between 6 Year Group Charities (Cancer Research UK, Diabetes UK, Dreams Come True, The Samaritans, Slide Away and Royal Marsden NHS Trust) and 2 Special events charities (Children in Need and Comic Relief) and some money has been retained by the School Council as the Council is Self-Funded.

2)    The Council subsidised the cost of the end of year trips for students.
