Our Student Senate is made up of 100 student leaders from year three onwards across our family of schools. The Senate was created to further our mission of unlocking academic and personal potential by empowering students to become self-regulating, take responsibility for themselves and others as contributing citizens.
The Senate provides extraordinary enrichment experiences that help students become the best learners and best people they can be. It is a place for students to express their voice, to take action and through their leadership to positively impact the Windsor Academy Trust family, the wider community and ultimately the planet.
Student engagement opportunities, such as the Senate, empower our students to speak about issues that are important to them and influence decision making. Our Student Senate demonstrates to students that their voices and opinions matter and that they can help shape the future. For example, the Senate helped develop the WAT Pledge and are playing a critical role in sustainability development across our family of schools.
Alongside the Senate, children undertake a range of leadership roles and responsibilities on an individual and trust-wide level. This includes house and school council representatives, prefects and subject leaders. These experiences enable students to contribute to school life and become well-rounded citizens who want to make a difference in the world.
