Tupton Hall Student Joins Derbyshire Youth Council

Congratulations to Year 9 student Andrew Gillott, who has been elected to the Derbyshire Youth Council.  Although a number of Tupton Hall School students showed an interest in this excellent opportunity Andrew was the only one to be nominated through Derbyshire County Council’s ‘The Big Vote’ campaign.  As a result he was automatically elected.

Andrew hopes to ensure that the council listen to the views of young people on issues such as:

  • Affordable sport and leisure facilities for young people
  • Apprenticeship/job opportunities for school leavers
  • Better advertising of events aimed at young people.
  • University Fees

Andrew said, "I’m looking forward to getting involved in the Derbyshire Youth Council. If other students have any ideas that they would like taking forward to the youth council conferences I’d be happy to hear from them. Hopefully we can try and improve some things as I’d like to help people out."

If you have ideas that you think Andrew should be taking to the Youth Council get them to him through your school council rep or directly to Andrew, who is in Mrs Slater’s form.
