The Sixth Form Students' Union provides a voice for students keen to take part in decision-making processes across a range of issues of direct concern to Sixth Form students.
This group consists of members elected by the students, meeting regularly to take a key role in the development of student facilities, social and charity events and enrichment activities across the Sixth Form.
All students have the opportunity to develop their contribution to community and leadership skills while studying at the Sixth Form. Students may lead extracurricular clubs, mentor younger students in the main school, support teaching of the younger year groups or help out at our Trust schools.
An extensive volunteering partnership is also in place with local organisations, as well as through the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme. Students’ contribution and engagement is recorded and this helps students in their applications to University or employment.
The student ambassador role within Sixth Form allows students to enhance and develop a range of skills and leadership qualities. Student ambassadors are representatives of the Sixth Form who work closely with the Sixth Form staff in a variety of ways.
Setting up, managing and delivering projects in the community, volunteering at events and promoting the Sixth Form with parents and students are key aspects of their work. Uniquely, student ambassadors help to shape their own role within Sixth Form making this an excellent opportunity for students.
