Meet Your Draco House Crew

The Crew system at Mounts Bay Academy gives every student the opportunity to be part of the Student Voice. Crew meetings involve all students and staff in vertical House groups where any relevant decisions that have been suggested by staff and students are discussed in mini crews, debated by the whole crew and then voted on. In the past the Student Voice, through the Crew system, have made decisions about the length of break times, the type and quality of the food in the canteen and the areas students use at lunchtimes.
