Ebbsfleet Academy

Student Voice

At Ebbsfleet Academy, we believe that enabling students to have a voice strengthens communication between students and teachers. The views of students will be consulted and taken into consideration in a variety of ways at all levels across the Academy. In turn, this creates a community where students and teachers work in partnership towards shared goals.

The Academy will have a Student Academy Council and Ebbsfleet Ambassadors. 

Academy Council structure

We have a Head Boy, Head Girl, Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl, as well as Ebbsfleet Ambassadors. Our student leaders meet regularly with Ms. Evans.  Matters discussed include:

1.  Matters of concern to students

2.  Improvements to the functioning of the academy

3.  Events aimed at promoting House and academy ethos.


Student Ambassadors

Year 9 students may apply to become Junior Prefects, and Year 10 students may apply to become Senior Prefects.  In addition, we have a Head Boy and Head Girl, a clerk to the student council, as well as Literacy Leaders and Sports Leaders.

The role of a Prefect:

  • To act as a role model to other students, demonstrating the utmost degree of diligence and embracing the academy’s values.
  • To assist the Leadership Team with their duties.
  • To carry out duties, including lunch duties.
  • To act as an ambassador for the academy in the local community.
  • To help with organisation and running of academy-wide events (e.g. parents evenings, open events, Year 6 induction day).
  • To attend Student Council meetings and lead the development of House Ethos.
  • To lead assemblies.
  • To attend meetings with the Leadership Team to review role and impact.
