Jordan McAteer has become Woodham Academy’s fourth student governor.
He will join the Governing Body to make sure that students’ views are heard.
Jordan applied to become a student governor because he wanted to make an impact on the school and the community.
He said: “Achievement for All is and rightly should be the schools motto because everyone has some sort of talent that is achievable and grade wise as well everyone has a chance to achieve in this school because it is a great school and I love being a student here.
“The school is very quickly improving in many areas and I like the thought of being part of this.”
Headteacher Christine Forsyth added: “It is right and proper that students are represented at the highest level at Woodham Academy, because Woodham is their school.
“I am delighted that Jordan has been appointed and know that he will be a worthy successor to our previous student governors Richie Howe, Josie Eldridge and Callum Scott, all of whom have been great ambassadors for Woodham.”
