Allow students to participate in the choosing of a new headteacher at St. George's Academy

This petition made change with 120 supporters!


Due to the departure of Mr Berry in April 2016, we believe that the students should have an impact in who takes over the leadership of our school. We are of the opinion that, as the way the school is run will primarily affect us, the students should have a role in deciding the direction of the school.


As students of St George's (and for Year 11s, future graduates), we want the reputation of the school to stay as prestigious as it currently is, but in order for this to be the case we feel that a Headteacher is required whom we have no doubt that they will maintain the key values of the school established by Mr Berry: Believe, Achieve and Care. The general consensus is that an appropriate Headteacher would be someone who has had experience in the school for several years, and someone who has contributed greatly with making the school what it is today.

We have created this petition to ask for the ability to contribute towards the decision of who will become the next leader of our school, as we feel strongly that it should be largely the student's decision as it will affect our education directly.

We do not endorse any possible candidates for the new headteacher. Any views on teachers published in the comments are not the same views as ourselves.
