Our New Building is OpenYou are here:
Our fantastic new building is open with learning now taking place.
The new building has been named the Woodside Building and the new library named the Orchard Library. The School drew on its history when choosing the names of its new facilities as Wexham School was created when Woodside County Secondary School and The Orchard County Secondary School combined in 1987.
Our new multimillion pound building is a major investment by Slough Borough Council as part of its ambitious school expansion programme. We now have 29 brand new classrooms housing Humanities, English, MFL and our SEN departments, including specialist ICT suites. In addition a new student services area was provided and at the very heart of the school a new Library including additional Sixth Form study areas.
In 2017 the School Hall, canteen and main reception areas underwent major refurbishment and provide a light and modern welcome to the school. The Science and Technology block is a recent addition to the school providing excellent specialist accommodation. Art studios (including an ICT mezzanine area), drama theatre and music are housed in purpose built specialist accommodation providing excellent facilities. A dance studio, media suite and pottery/ceramics are housed in recently built purpose built accommodation. The recent addition of a new sports hall which also has classrooms and a fitness suite provides excellent facilities alongside our large Astroturf, MUGA and field.
Wexham's location on the edge of Slough means we have a fantastic amount of space. Outside space and trees provide an excellent environment for learning and the well-being of students and staff alike. We have a truly 'campus' feel which creates an atmosphere where all can excel.
