To encourage students to take an active role in their school community, to help grow confidence, develop skills and improve the environment stakeholders learn, work and live in.
At West Exe School, we place a key emphasis on empowering our students and encourage them to take on leadership roles within the school.
Leadership Opportunity include:
- Equality for All

- MP (Students voice + Student Panel )

At West Exe we are committed to responding to the views and ideas of our students.
Our School Parliament is chaired by the Head Boy and Head Girl. Members of Parliament (MP) are elected from each tutor group, and gather to represent the student body’s views at Parliament Sittings three times per year. The Head perfects then feed back to the Senior Leadership Team, who respond the following week with outcomes and decisions. The MP will then feed this back to their tutor group.
Charity and Fundraising
We are dedicated to supporting local, national and international charities. As part of our House week offer, students vote for which house they would like to raise money for throughout the school year. Students are responsible for the organisation and running of the fundraising events with the support of their Head of House.

Students may choose to focus on an area of their choice to put on assemblies, events, drop-ins and give advice.
