HIGH school sixth formers were in charge for the day as they organised some fun and educational activities for younger pupils at Morpeth Town Hall.

A special Student Voice Conference entitled My School, My Voice was put together to give young people the chance to discuss their ideas on a range of classroom issues, such as learning spaces, educational routes, the curriculum and learning styles, to help teachers meet their pupils’ needs.

It was led by King Edward VI School Student Voice Ambassadors Kate Charlton, Simon Pickles, Rebecca Fisher and Calum Thomson and was also attended by students from neighbouring Chantry, Newminster and Dr Thomlinson Middle Schools.

As well as having their say about their school, those taking part were able to enjoy action-packed workshops, which included the use of the climbing wall at Morpeth charity Barnabas Safe and Sound.
