The President and Vice President of the Student Council are elected by the students to represent their needs and interests and to contribute to the decision-making and governance of the College. Members of the Student Council serve on the governing
body. The students are expected to initiate and take responsibility for many of their own activities – for example, the social programme and their contribution to the wider community through collections for charity or other awareness raising events.
As your Student President and Vice President, we would like to give all prospective students of St Francis Xavier Sixth Form College a warm welcome! SFX is a unique learning environment that accepts anyone despite their social or religious background; their main goal is to help you to reach the best of your ability. They want you to succeed as much as anyone and effectively prepare individuals for the working world through workshops and talks from motivational speakers, encouraging success every step of the way.
Our advice to all year 11 students is to adopt an enthusiastic, dedicated and motivated persona in order to strive to the best of your ability. Avoiding setbacks will eventually ensure that you are prepared for university and the working world; you will become the person you have always aspired to be. Remember that every decision you make will eventually affect your future, therefore take every opportunity given to you at SFX with both hands and strive to be the best you can be!
With confidence, determination and faith, anything can be possible.
Good luck in your GCSEs, and we hope to see you all in September!
