Blackpool Sixth's Student Council is a representative body of students who aim to improve the overall experience of their peers at the college.

The council is made up of students who work together to address issues and concerns raised by their fellow students. They act as a liaison between the student body and the college management, providing a platform for students to voice their opinions and suggestions.

The Student Council is committed to making Blackpool Sixth a welcoming, inclusive, and supportive environment for all students.
