The council consists of 2 pupils per grade who are democratically elected to represent the pupil body for a one year term of office. The Gr 8 representatives are elected at the end of the first term and the senior representatives are elected at the end of the third term to coincide with the end of the matric school year. Two members of the council are elected by the council to represent the pupil body on the Governing Body, where they have full voting rights. The new council has a short training seminar at the start of a new term of office
The council functions as a representative and advisory body. Full meetings are held approximately twice a term. At these meetings matters are raised by council members representing a group of pupils or a grade. Matters may also be referred to council by senior management in order to establish council or pupil opinion. These meetings are run formally with an agenda, an elected chairman and a secretary taking minutes. Staff members or group representatives may be invited to a particular meeting if it is felt that they can provide insight into a particular agenda item. Pupils are occasionally invited in order to represent and defend a particular proposal that they have raised. Any decisions taken at these meetings or proposals that have been made are assigned to members of the council to follow up with the relevant members of staff. It is also the duty of council members to provide feedback from the meetings to their relevant grades.
Short informal meetings are held fortnightly in order to follow up on any matters taken further and to identify any issues for the next main meeting. An open forum is held twice a year, at which pupils are invited to raise any matters or issues that need clarification. Matters that cannot be dealt with at the time are put on the agenda for the next formal meeting.
