Our Student Parliament is made up of students across the Academy who provide a forum for discussing and acting on issues. At Aylesbury Vale Academy, we believe that academic excellence is only one part of holistic development, which is reflected in the Student Parliament.

Representatives of each year's group are elected by their peers and meet weekly on Thursdays with Miss Blake-Huggins and the Head of Student Parliament. 

Student Parliament Updates


  • We have recycling bins for paper waste for the classrooms on the top floor, middle floor and ground floor.
  • In each classroom we have placed a “AVA Paper Recycling Box” to recycle as much paper as we can.
  • Parliament members are currently working on a project regarding plastic bottles.


  • Many of us, along with Year 7/8/9 students, have been picking up litter at the end of break and lunch as well as in the atrium before form starts every morning.
  • Often the amount of litter has been bad, but it has improved in the last few months. However, there is still a lot to improve we would really appreciate it if the bins were used, especially for food waste as this is often hard to grab with the litter pickers we have bought.


  • Every few years the Academy can decide whether to continue with the current company or choose a new one.
  • Some time back Parliament reviewed the menus for food that will be on offer and tasted some of the food produced by all the companies bidding.  We then gave our feedback to the companies and the school leadership.
  • Outcome – the food company was changed successfully.


  • Student Parliament from both the Primary and Secondary phases worked with the local Berryfields foodbank to deliver some fantastic donations from parents, carers, staff, and students.
  • The students were welcomed by a wonderful volunteer who took time to explain how the food bank runs and how important donations are to our community.
  • The Student Parliament members would like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who was able to donate! We are looking forward to running this again next year, to continue to help the Berryfield community.

The Student Parliament is more than just a representative body; it is a training ground for leaders. Through active participation, students not only learn about governance but also cultivate essential life skills such as communication, teamwork, and problem-solving. We envision our student leaders embodying the values of respect, resilience, and aspiration, becoming positive change-makers within our school community and beyond.

As we embark on this exciting journey, we invite every student to actively engage, share ideas, and contribute to the vibrant tapestry of our academic environment. Together, let's build tomorrow, today, guided by the principles of respect, resilience, and aspiration.
