Why you should become a member.

No gimmicks.  No discount card. No distractions. No mixed allegiances. Just 100% support for members.

Our members are our fellow school councillors and we treat them as such.

You’ll never be taken for granted because we’re genuinely interested in your school or college.

Our membership fee is based on enrolment so that’s the only time we’ll talk numbers.
