Kingston Maurward College has a very active Student Council that gets involved in all aspects of life at college. Student Council gives students from across the college the opportunity to have your views heard, share your thoughts and ideas and have a say in the things that matter to you.

What is Student Council?

Student Council is made up of student representatives invited from all college courses. They are each elected by their course group.

The Council meets up with key college staff once per month in term time. Student representatives bring feedback from their fellow students and give management staff key information to assist in decision making.

The Council’s vision is to ensure that students have a say in every aspect of college provision and, that they have every opportunity to contribute to the college community and to make improvements.
