Academy council

The purpose of our academy council is to:

  • Listen to everyone’s ideas, from Reception class to Year 6
  • Find out what all the children think about the school and ways we can improve it
  • Discuss ideas which will help to improve the school for all children
  • Act as role models, showing good manners and respectful behaviour
  • Discuss the core values, looking for good examples and sharing them with our classes
  • Help new children to settle in

The School Council have also created a Code of Conduct for all our students to follow, which has been created using some of their class rules.

Code of Conduct


Our Head Girl & Head Boy

Ruby Gibson

My name is Ruby, I am 10 years old and head Girl at Upwell Academy and a year 6 at present.  I have represented the school in cross-country, golf and area sports.  My favourite subjects are art and PE.  I was very excited to be voted as Head Girl and hope to make the school a better place for all of Upwell’s pupils.

Outside of school I do gymnastics and Girls Brigade.  One thing I would like to improve are the lines on the netball court and for the games to be repainted on the Key Stage 2 playground.  I would like to thank school staff for starting some clubs that we did not have before and thanks to one of the parents for starting an after-school gardening club.

I am really enjoying being Head girl and look forward to the year ahead.


Isaac Roberts

My name is Isaac Roberts and I am 11 years old.

I wanted to become Head Boy so that I could help to make improvements to the school that everyone can enjoy.  I am extremely happy to be Head boy at Upwell Academy and was surprised at the amount of votes that I got.  I hope that I can achieve what I set out to do.

I enjoy being a pupil at Upwell Academy and my favourite subjects are maths and science.  I also enjoy PE, especially rugby.

Outside of school I enjoy being part of the local scout group and improving mu Ju-Jitsu. Techniques.  I also like spending time with my friends and making short films.

One of my ideas has already been put into action.  When the weather is nice, those with a packed lunch are able to choose to sit outside to eat with their friends on the field.  I hope that with support from the school council and teachers at the school that we can bring to life new ideas and enjoy them all together.
