Birkenhead Sixth Form College’s team of Student Ambassadors have been named for the next academic year.

Beating stiff competition for the positions, the shortlist came down to 42 students who will be representing the College at events throughout the year, including Freshers’ Day in July for our new students, Open Evenings and welcoming our many visitors and guests.

“I’m really looking forward to being an Ambassador and I’m grateful to have been chosen – it’s quite a privilege."

Oliver Hilton, Student Ambassador

The lucky new Ambassadors were chosen by our Student Development Team as they showed passion and commitment in their studies, but also to the people around them, which is an important factor in their roles when it comes to welcoming new students and parents to the College, and offering that helping hand to those who need it.

Ambassadors will be given the all-important, coveted purple lanyards too, so they can be an obvious first port of call for fellow students and staff alike.

First year, Oliver Hilton, one of the honoured few, said: “I’m really looking forward to being an Ambassador and I’m grateful to have been chosen – it’s quite a privilege. I’d like to help out in any way I can for the College because I’ve had a great year here so far: it’s been challenging but really enjoyable, and I’ve discovered new interests that I never knew about before coming here.

“I’m just looking forward to getting that purple lanyard now!”
