Student Voice & Engagement

Getting involved in things outside of your course doesn't have to be boring! It can be hugely beneficial to both you and the college!

At the beginning of each academic year, students from across the college elect a representative to feed back their opinions and views to college managers.  

The Student Voice is chaired by the President of the Grantham College Student Union and supported by an Advice & Guidance Re[presentative. 

If you are interested in any of the following activities, then please get in touch with Amy, as she would love to hear from you:

  • Becoming a Student Voice Rep

  • Standing to be elected in the annual Student Union elections

  • Organising a fundraising activity for charity

  • Starting up a new club or society

  • Volunteering as a College Ambassador


Meet your new Student Union Roles



Student Union President - Rennique Tapper

Currently Studying: Year 2 Level 3 Travel & Tourism

 “The World is a book and those who do not travel only read a page” – Saint Augustine. Not only has this quote inspired me to be influenced by the mysterious wonders of the world and tourism, I have adapted it to my social life; meeting new people and making them feel like their story is worth telling is something I’m passionate about. I am an 18-year-old with an eager approach to uphold the colleges diverse standards. This is my opportunity to give students without a voice a chance to stand-up and be heard.



Mature Student officer - Jessica Bunning 

Level 3, Year 2 Student in Animal Management 

I'm a mature student here at Grantham college, in my third year, after returning from 6 years of full-time employment in retail and hospitality. I came back to college after deciding on a career change into the animal sector. In my spare time I enjoy singing lessons, that I attend every week, craft projects and watching my favourite youtubers or Netflix shows.  
I joined the student union because I saw how the pandemic was affecting the tight knit community of student here, causing worry and stress around both college work and social life and I want to be part of the team who can help make student life enjoyable and manageable again. I hope that as part of GCSU I can help my fellow students make the most out of their time here, bring the community back together again and most importantly, in my opinion, enjoy themselves before they embark on the next stages of their journey.
