Thurston Sixth Students' Union

As the Students’ Union, we are proud to take a central role in our Sixth Form.

We have a responsibility to make the most of the opportunities in front of us and to develop new ones for future generations of students.

Our Students’ Union provides a range of opportunities for every student to take an active role in the running of Thurston Sixth.  Whether it is voicing opinions through questionnaires and focus groups, or getting involved in the Charities, Social, Sports or Wellbeing committee meetings, our students are the focal point and at the heart of decision-making. We run weekly activities such as open mic competitions, sports fixtures, charity fundraising events, dodgeball leagues, wellbeing events and much more. This helps to create the vibrant and happy community atmosphere here at Thurston.

In addition to this, the Students’ Union Executive is a body of elected representatives who take the lead on all student
matters, chair committees and meet weekly with Head of Sixth Form Mr Potter.
