Throughout the college year you will have the opportunity to get involved in trips, sports sessions, volunteering opportunities and awareness events. You can be involved in as much or as little as you like. Taking part in some of the organised activities will look great on your CV or UCAS application and we also hope that it will contribute to a great college experience.
Being a Class Rep is your chance to make a difference to you and your class. You will attend monthly School forums where you will meet with other class reps and college staff. The purpose of the forum is to give you and your class the opportunity to discuss issues and work together to organise events. These Reps also have the chance to become a Site Rep, who will attend the Student Council which is a cross college group that meets to discuss wider college issues such as the refectory, end of term events and themed weeks.
If you’re interested in becoming a Student Governor, you need to apply and campaign for the position, and then there will be a college-wide election where all students will be able to vote for who they want to be Governor. The successful Student Governors will attend the Student Council Meetings and also the College’s Governor Meetings.
All students when they receive their college entitlement card automatically become democratic voting members of the National Union of Students. This is a national union lobbying and representing student issues across the UK.
