Citizenship at Jesmond Park Academy

Student Representatives and Student Forum

Our Sixth Form Student Representatives are a vital part of our community. They act as ambassadors and spokespeople and are passionate about our academy.

They also organise and attend Student Forum meetings - half termly events to which all Sixth Form students and staff with a vested interest in the Sixth Form are invited to attend.

Members of our Sixth Form Student Forum play an active role in the running of their Sixth Form. They provide feedback from the rest of the student body, make suggestions about improving facilities and coordinate fundraising events. They also collaborate with the lower school student council to address issues across the whole school.

The Forum have historically supported charities such as Barnardo’s, St Oswald’s Hospice, Children in Need, Marie Curie Cancer Care and Unicef. They also take a particular interest in supporting local charities and have fundraised for homeless and refugee services based here in the North East.

We always want to hear from students and do our best to make any improvements suggested.
