Academy Council The Academy Council is made up of student representatives from each year group, led by our Senior Prefect Team. The council gives students a real voice in decision making and progress around the school. Their previous projects include extensive fundraising initiatives and designing our new canteen, The Core and two gardens in school. Every year the team are tasked with organising fundraising for local and international charities and thinking about how they can work for both the school community, and the local community of St Austell. In June 2016 they raised over £2000 for South African charity Siphila Sonke and 2017 saw the council plan and implement an international project – #Penrice3580 – raising over £17000 for children in Sierra Leone. Last year they supported Cornwall Hospice. This year the team have chosen Cornwall’s Invictus Trust as their chosen charity.
