Who are we?
The Students’ Union meets weekly to discuss issues and ideas that will make students’ college experience here at Prior Pursglove as enjoyable and beneficial as possible. Meetings are chaired by our student-elected President and Vice-President and assisted by the input of Student Officers. In the past we have lobbied local MPs, campaigned against travel card cuts and much more. We plan to grow and achieve more as the years go by in and outside of college.
You can find us in the conference room on a Monday lunchtime (fortnightly) and any student is welcome. Hope to see you there!
The Events Team
We are a dedicated group of students whose aim is to assist in the organisation and running of fun and often charitable events for students here at Prior Pursglove College. We believe that enjoyment is an important aspect of studying; we meet every Tuesday lunchtime in the conference room to discuss and plan events that will make everyone’s college experience more fun.
In the past we have raised money for organisations such as ‘Children in Need’, ‘The Teenage Cancer Trust’ and ‘Comic Relief’ and we are also open to new fundraising ideas. We also organised trips to Alton Towers, a Bollywood Fashion Show, sponsored abseils, a Haunted Sleepover, Prior Olympic Games, lunchtime concerts and much more!
The Student Forum meets once every half-term in the Lecture Theatre. Everyone is invited and this is the perfect opportunity for your Tutor Reps to meet with the Students’ Union Executive and members of senior management. Here they can discuss matters affecting their tutor groups, provide feedback for the college, vote on pressing issues and communicate students’ views in an open environment.
Our Students’ Union has strong links with the National Union of Students, don’t forget to purchase your NUS Extra card to receive loads of great student discounts!
