Student Voice

Our students are integral to the development and growth of the Sixth Form and listening to student voice is an important part of ensuring that the Sixth Form is vibrant and exciting, challenging and aspirational. Students sit on a Sixth Form Council and all students complete a termly online survey, allowing and encouraging them to reflect and share their ideas for improvement.

Student Leadership

The Head Student Team are well respected throughout the school and represent the Sixth Form and wider school both within school and by participating in local community events too. The team is made up of Head Boy and Head Girl and their two Deputies.
Other opportunities for leadership exist through the House system and opportunities to attend events such as ‘Big Bang@Bucks’ STEM event, where our students led science activities for local KS3 students.

Alumni

We are excited to keep in touch with our leavers and ask to be able to contact alumni once a year to receive and update on where our students go and what they do. If you are a JCS Sixth Form leaver and wish to keep in touch with us, please complete the form linked here.
