Student Voice at Wexham School
Student participation is a crucial part of Wexham School. We pride ourselves on having an active, dynamic and passionate student body who help make key decisions and inform the day to day running of Wexham School. We care about what the students think and take time to listen to them. Student Voice is engaged in many different ways at Wexham School including, School Council, Sixth Form, SLT, Learning Leaders and Student Voice questionnaires.
The Student Council
The Student Council are a democratically elected organisation made up of Tutor and Year Student Representatives from Years 7-13. At the beginning of each academic year students from each tutor group campaign to become the Tutor Representative. Once selected the Tutor Representatives present their manifesto’s to the Year group in assembly. The Year group then vote for which of the Tutor Representatives should become the Year Representative.

- Year 7 - Ryann Hussein
- Year 8 - Elizabeth Asiimwe
- Year 9 - David Rasuli
- Year 10 - Sana Ahmed
- Year 11 - Wardah Nazir
- Year 12 - Usman Hanif
- Year 13 - Mohammed Khubaib
The School Council are an effective driver of positive change at Wexham School. They continue to work closely with Mr Smith and the Senior Leadership Team to implement a number of developments that benefit the students at Wexham School considerably. One of the most important of these was the improvement of the school's reward system. After consulting with and canvassing the opinions of the student body the School Council developed a proposal of ideas which reflected the views of the tutor groups they represented. The Year Representatives then pitched their ideas to the Senior Leadership Team. The ideas were welcomed and incorporated into the reward policy and the school now has a clearer and more motivational reward structure which the students are really appreciating.
The School Council play a leading role in a range of charity events at Wexham School. Recent Sports and Comic Relief events have been organised and delivered by the School Council. These events have been really well received by the student population and the wider community. The activities have been innovative, engaging and extremely prosperous for the charities involved. The School Council raised in excess of £1700 for Comic Relief 2017.
The Student Council have also been actively involved in the appointment of new members of staff including the new Deputy Head Teacher and Head of Sixth Form. They interviewed the candidates and fed back their views to Mrs Smith and the Senior Leadership Team. The students found this process incredibly useful and enabled them to have direct experience of participating in a formal interview situation.
