The Student Union
What is the Union?
- The union enables Sixth Formers to be involved in the running of aspects of school life that affect them.
- It organises social and sports events, the leavers' ball, charity work and many other activities.
- The union represents Sixth Form Students. Elected officials have a responsibility to ensure the views of Sixth Form students are heard and the image of the Sixth Form is maintained.
How Does The Union Work?
- The most important body is the Union Assembly – a regular meeting of union officials and any member who wishes to attend. The Union Assembly makes the major decision for the union.
- A series of “Commissions” have responsibility for particular areas of work for, example the social commission and community commission.
- Each year, during the Summer Term, all members of Year 12 elect the union's officers, the President and Vice President of the Union. The President and officers are in charge of the day to day running of union affairs.
How Do I Join In?
- All members of the Sixth Form are members of the Student union.
- All members have the right to attend meetings and have their say.
All are encouraged to get involved in union activities. The union will affect your life and experience in the Sixth Form so take an interest, make suggestions and be active.
