Student Voice


Student Voice

The voice of our students at Harris Academy Beckenham is of vital importance.

The voice of our students plays an important part in the successful running of the Academy. There are many avenues through which students can voice their views, both informally and formally. From running for Student Leadership Group to joining Student Council to participating in student surveys, we want every student to know that their voice is heard and valued.

Student Voice also provides opportunities for students to engage with the larger community. By supporting charities through fundraisers, raising the profile of the academy within Beckenham and opportunities to participate in the Bromley Youth Council, students have the chance for student voices to be amplified and make an impact beyond our four walls.

If you would like to find out more about our student voice program at Harris Academy Beckenham then please email Ms La Joice:

Student voice table of leadership

Head Girl and Head Boy

Our 6th form student leaders are taking the lead with Student Voice. The Head Boy and Girl lead Student Leadership Group meetings with Prefects mentoring year groups. They meet on a regular basis to plan and present ideas to the Principal and Assistant Leadership Group.

Student Leadership Group


The Student Leadership Group (SLG) meets once a month and is made up of a student from each tutor group across years 7-11. To be part of the SLG, students are elected in the first term of each year.

An agenda is created by Ms La Joice and the 6th form leaders, with students being given time to prepare for each meeting with their fellow tutor group members. Minutes are written up for each meeting and presented back to the Academy Leadership Group where actions are put in place. Feedback is then given to the rest of the student body via HouseMail at the end of our weekly assemblies.

Each year group is focused on a specific key area, creating action plans, and making suggestions to improve the student experience here at HABE:

Year 7 – Enrichment

Year 8 – Engagement

Year 9 – Conduct

Year 10 – Wellbeing

Student Commission

The Student Commission meets once a month throughout the academic year and is made up of 20-30 students from years 7-12. This group of students are split into three focus groups: leaders of learning who assess the learning in the classroom; an action group who focus on change that the Student Leadership Group (see above) discuss; and a research group who find out relevant issues amongst the student body. To be part of the Student Commission students are required to complete an application form.

Student Council

The Student Council meets weekly for half hour sessions and is made up of students from all year groups. The discussion topics range from bullying and discrimination to building positive staff-student relationships to reflecting on events and initiatives. Student Council provides an additional chance for students to make suggestions and participate in action plans instigated by the Student Leadership Group.
