Student Voice

  • Peer Mentoring
  • Student Council
  • Joining a new school as a Year 7 pupil can be a daunting experience. However, at Woking High School the students from Year 10 have taken on the responsibility of making the transition between Primary and High School less daunting. Mentoring also encourages students to be supportive of each other.

    The Peer Mentors from Y10 have undergone a rigorous application process and all participated in a formal Peer Mentor training day. The Peer Mentors are introduced to Year 7 on their Induction Day in July. Sessions for mentees begin in September and are held in form time. The Peer Mentor’s job is to advise, encourage and reassure.  In their sessions, a mentee will generally complete specific activities or they might simply have an informal conversation with their mentor. Peer Mentors are trained in how to handle any worries a mentee might disclose to them.

  • Woking High School has an active Student Voice. Our ethos is that Students are to be empowered to contribute to the successful running of the school. Student input is to be sought, valued and acknowledged”All Tutor Groups in the whole school community have two elected Representatives. All Tutor Representatives are then allocated to one of four Sub Councils, which form the Full School Council collectively. These councils include the Core Council, Year Councils, Charity Council and Eco Council. Sub Councils meet twice per term to discuss relevant matters, for which they are then responsible to investigate and/or action. The Full School Council also then come together at the end of each term to report on the matters raised within their Council remit, with explanation of how they action these matters. Furthermore, each department also has a Subject Council that works alongside teachers to explore student issues. Woking High School truly value the Student Voice, and encourage all to get involved.
