Year 7You are here:
Welcome to Year 7
We are a dynamic, diverse and talented team who is committed to the care of students in Year 7, which has an outstanding impact on care, guidance and support. We are focused on supporting students academically, emotionally and socially from joining Wexham at the start of Year 7 all the way through to the end of Year 7.
Students are constantly challenged in all aspects of school life to advance their ability to become better learners and caring individuals who aspire to achieve their full potential. Homework is set on a weekly basis and a homework timetable is produced for Year7. The expectation is that all students record their homework in their school planners and are expected to complete to the best of their ability.
We believe in promoting successful outcomes at all levels and have a strong rewards system in place. We celebrate our successes on a termly basis in our Achievement Assemblies where good practice is recognised. We have an active Student Voice within the school where students have the opportunity to raise student issues on a whole school basis. Each year group has a nominated spokesperson for this role who will voice the year groups opinions.
There are a vast range of opportunities for students to get involved with school life from the outset. A summer school is set up for targeted students so that the transition from Year 6 to 7 runs smoothly. There is also an opportunity for Year7 students to attend a 2-day residential trip to the New Forest in the first few weeks of term. This is an ideal opportunity for team building to take place and for students to get to know others in their year group. Other trips run throughout the year on a rewards basis. There is also an extensive range of extra-curricular activities that take place in Year7 ranging from sporting events, arts and crafts, technology, ICT and science.
We believe every child does really matter.
