Tring Talk Student Council

Our student council is called Tring Talk. Any student can nominate themselves to be part of this group. We meet every fortnight for an informal discussion and once a half term for a formal meeting.

48377156 591611814607059 1816218120449163264 nAt our fortnightly meetings students have the opportunity to give feedback, ask questions and make suggestions. It’s a great forum for students to have their say and get answers to questions that they have about the running of and the future of our school.

At the formal meeting we share important information with the students and debate current school issues, for example use of tutor time  or our new assessment policy.

Tring Talk gives every student at Tring the opportunity to be heard. We advertise it regularly to remind students that it is there for them to come and share their thoughts and ideas. 

Our meetings are held in Learning Resource Centre - Week 1 Tuesdays from 1.35 - 2.00pm.
