What is the Student Voice Team at Bonus Pastor?

The Student Voice Team speaks for the whole student body of the College, elected by the students, for the students:

The Student Voice Team is a body of students elected by the students to represent the students of the College. The Student Voice Team works together with the College staff to build upon the successes of the College and to give all students an opportunity to raise issues that are important to them. The Student Voice get involved in various aspects of school life bringing their ideas and enthusiasm to help affect a change.

The Student Voice Team consists of the following areas:

The Jack Petchey Award

Bonus Pastor Young Achievers have been recognised through the Jack Petchey Award. The Jack Petchey Award is a nationally renowned award and each winner is one of the country’s future leaders, chosen by the students in their Year.

Winners of the Award get a certificate and prize, along with a prize that they donate to the school to enhance the lives of students in the school.  For example the Annual Leaver's Year Book is a direct result of a student donating the seed money to set up this popular book.

For a list of all of our Jack Petchy winners see our Student Voice Jack Petchy page at

Youth Travel Ambassadors

The Student Voice Team have been working with TFL staff on a youth led programme for secondary schools. YTA offers innovative ways to involve young people in ways to improve their own wellbeing, the surrounding environment, and the local community. Students planned, organised and created a film, ‘Just Think, Don’t Judge’ to highlight some of the negative stereotyping that happens on buses and to promote positive attitudes and behaviour between the youth and older members of the public.

There are further opportunities to continue working with TFL on various programmes to try and promote positive messages on public transport.
