The role of Student Council is to represent student views and to help the College be responsive to the needs of fellow students, making their time here happy and productive. Each year the Council will involve itself in charity work, will feed back student concerns to College management and will organize social events. The Student Council has its own Constitution.
Student Council also supports various student groups and societies including, for example, faith groups, the LGBT and Animé Manga. Every group will receive support and oversight from a designated member of staff. Any group or society may apply for financial support and there is more information on how to do this on the Student Council Moodle page. All student groups and societies must comply with all the College’s policies and procedures including the College’s e-safety Policy, Equality and Diversity Policy, Health and Safety Policy and the Student Groups and Societies Protocols.
All students are automatically members of the Student Council and therefore entitled to vote for the Student Council Executive. Any student can put themselves forward to become a member of Student Council Executive. Members are elected by the whole student body through a democratic vote. The Council has its own budget and meets at least three times a year whilst the Executive meets each week. The Principal and their team attend Student Council meetings to listen to students and to feedback on actions taken in response to Student Council suggestions.
The Student Council Chair and Vice Chair are also members of the College’s local governing body. Student Council is your chance to help the College to work with students for students.
