Student Voice


We are pleased to introduce our new team of Student Voice Leaders from Year 10: 

SV

These students were appointed following their fantastic efforts in Year 9. In most cases, these students have been Tutor Reps who have stood out for all the right reasons. In other cases, they have shown their commitment and dedication to the school in other ways.

These students will now work in pairs to oversee the new teams of Tutor Reps in Years 7-9, who were recently elected to represent their tutor group. This will involve them leading a termly meeting at which the tutor reps will be asked to bring feedback from their tutor groups on a range of topics – from suggested improvements to the school site, to one-off projects such as a review of homework or the development of cashless catering in the school canteen. We are also pleased to advise that we are extending these Tutor Rep meetings into Year 10 for the first time, thanks to the support of a key group of Sixth Form students to oversee this. More information regarding these discussions will appear in future newsletters. 

We would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate all those who were elected to the roles of Tutor Rep and Sports Rep.  We look forward to working with you all and hearing your ideas for making Twynham School even more successful.

Finally, thanks so much to our current Year 11s who did a great job in leading the Tutor Reps last school year.  These students will stay on to advise and support the Year 10s until their GCSE preparations kick in – thank you to Tom Halliwell, Maria Thompson, Bea Smailes, Ben Jones, Honey Hawkins and Billy Quillan.  One last thank you – to Stephanie Day and Megan Wetherick (both Year 13) who will oversee the whole team of Student Voice Leaders this year.

As always, if you have any great ideas of how you (with our help) could make Twynham even better – let us know.  Email us – studentvoice@twynhamschool.comAnd if you are 13+, please follow us on Twitter!
