Bath Student Parliament 2022
Senior School, Global Citizens, Community
We are proud to be one of 11 schools taking part in the Bath Student Parliament. This is a fantastic initiative bringing together students from across Bath - two from each school are elected by their peers - to share ideas and develop a vision for action on matters of priority.
Supported by a core working group of staff from across the range of schools, and Off the Record, the Bath Student Parliament meets regularly each term. Students are given a forum to be heard on global and local issues and help play a part in shaping positive change for the community and wider world.
On Friday 29 April over 50 students and staff came together at Monkton Combe School for the formal launch of the Bath Student Parliament, together with local MPs, Wera Hobhouse and Jacob Rees-Mogg, as guests for the event. The evening provided the opportunity for the working group members and elected representatives to come together for the first time. Four students from Royal High School Bath attended the launch including the two outgoing representatives - Eliana and Sophie (both Year 13) who this year are handing over to our two new representatives - Pelagia and Anja (both Year 11).
Kate Reynolds Head of Royal High School Bath said: “Well done to all the students for representing their schools so well and for having the confidence and self-belief to find their voices and speak up for what they believe.
“A massive well done also to the organisers for creating an environment where students are encouraged to express themselves and to be fearless - a Royal High School Bath value that runs through our school. The Bath Student Parliament is certain to be an invaluable experience in enabling students to bring about actual change in their local community but also in helping these young people develop a voice and leadership skills beyond school.”
