Student Council — Solihull Sixth Form College

Student Council

Through projects and activities, the Student Council works to:


The role of the 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 feedback student concerns to the college senior leadership team and will organise social events. The student council has its own Constitution.

The Student Council also supports various student groups & societies including, faith groups, the LGBTQ+ and Anime Manga to name a few. Once a term leads from the societies meet with the student council to discuss budgets, events, and marketing. A society /group will receive support and oversight from a designated Student Development Officer. 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 & 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 can set up a group or society. You must have at least 5 members. For further information contact Tina Champion (SDO Co-ordinator Ext 2070)

All students can put themselves forward to become a member of Student Council. The Council has its own budget and meets every week. The principal and other members of college’s senior leadership 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. Being a member of the Student Council is your chance to help the College to work with students for students.
