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, Digital Leaders, 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 10 – Jayna Nasibu
- Year 11 -
- Year 12 – Kamo Ochal/Dishaa Aulakh

One of the main successes of the student council this year has been to undertake a detailed survey which canvassed the opinions of the whole student population (Years 7-13) about a wide range of issues and improvements that they want made to the school, the Student Council then analysed the results of their surveys and have been subsequently working hard on making those improvements. As a result of this they are currently working with the Senior Leadership Team on updating the schools rewards system. Watch this space!
The Student Council have also been actively involved in the appointment of new members of staff, They have delivered assemblies and through a consultation with all the student were able to choose what to spend nearly £10,000 on when the Headteacher asked them to prioritise, research and budget for items from the money provided to the school by the Soft Drinks Industry Levy.
The student council have also been actively involved in the appointment of new members of staff including the new Assistant Head teachers and the Head of Sixth Form. They interviewed the candidates and fed back their views to Mr Smith and the Senior Leadership Team.
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.
