The main aim of the Pupil Council is to focus on and respond to the issues that affect the young people at Troup House School. The Council will be involved in school improvement and will ensure that all of the young people are represented in decision making processes within the school and will also:
- Work in partnership with adults to create a warm and inclusive school
- Develop and engage in activities that support the education, wellbeing and safety of all associated with the school
- Assist the school to play an active role within the local community
The council has elected a Chair and Co-chair and has its own elected Treasurer amongst the young people, and the young people also invite others to attend council meeting this year, this has included the Children’s Rights Worker from our host authority.

Troup House News – the paper where Troopers make the news
Every term we publish our own newspaper as part of our approach to literacy and to share news, achievements and forthcoming events with our school community. It is eagerly awaited as it includes lots of interesting news, interviews and articles by our young people. We also publish photographs of our adventures and events, and make up our own competitions and a couple of our young people also write up a Movie Review.
