Student Council

The Student Council are elected by the students and consist of representatives across all year groups from Year 7 to the Sixth Form. They play an active role in life at Maltings Academy, bringing ideas and requests to our regular meetings, which are designed to help move the Academy forward in a way in which the students would like.


Their busy schedules also include observing lessons and having had training on this they are able to give feedback to teachers on what they have observed. They have also participated in the interview process and appointment of senior members of staff and we take their views seriously and work hard in conjunction with them to make Maltings Academy a better place.


The Student Council also decide on which charities the Academy supports with fundraising each term.

This term we have appointed our new Head Boy, Stephen Penaflor and Head Girl, Leonie Alger along with their deputies, Krzysztof Jagiello, David Warner, Beth Goodwin and Millie Warboys

The new Student Leadership team have already met with Mrs Baker and the outgoing team to discuss what they have learnt from their time as student leaders and what tips they have to share.

Leonie Alger

"Maltings Academy is a caring school built to support young people in reaching their full potential. I feel privileged to be appointed in the role of Head Girl and feel I'm giving something back to an outstanding school, where teachers display passion and dedication on a daily basis. That's why I was so keen to apply for the Head Girl position; so I can help continue this amazing journey at Maltings, not just for me but for others too."


Stephen Penaflor

"What I find to be the greatest aspect of Maltings Academy is very hard to accurately say. However I can say the teachers' willingness to help every student, of all types of abilities, to achieve the very best they possibly can is certainly a strong candidate. Examples include when teachers go out of their way to provide continued support, whether that be revision sessions; one-on-one revision sessions; or even providing students with important feedback to improve their grades. This establishes a safe, calm and successful atmosphere within the Academy, effectively continuing the tradition of our motto, “To make our best better.” It is an absolute pleasure to do what I can in order to continue the tradition as Head Boy of Maltings Academy."
