Students' Union & Enrichment
The Students' Union (SU) represents students opinions and views. It aims to provide support to students who may need representation and encourage students to take an active interest in student life.
Students can get involved by becoming a class representative where they are the elected voice of the students in their class.
There is also an opportunity to become the President, Vice President or Sports & Entertainment Officer for the Students' Union.
The SU organises various activities including sports events, social functions, outdoor pursuits and fundraising events. They also offer advice on various aspects of College life, health and wellbeing.

Enrichment activities are available to all students, regardless of gender, age or ability, and provide students with opportunities to broaden their experiences and enhance their personal development. The majority of enrichment activities take place on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons.
Every student can enrol on one or more enrichment activity. The range and variety of activities on offer means there is something to cater for every individual. A College shouldn’t just be somewhere you come to get qualifications, but a place where you can enjoy yourself and develop interests and skills that can be continued for life.
These are some of the activities you can take part in:
- 5-a-side Football
- 11-a-side Football
- DJ Club
- Guitar Club
