Head of School – Ben W
My name is Ben and I’m your new Head of School. I’m currently studying History, Politics and Religion. I’ve been at Sexey’s since year 7 so it’s been a massive part of my life and a huge part of me growing up. Because of this I feel like I really understand the school and what it means to be a Sexey’s student. I want to continue some of the great work the previous prefects have done as well as work with the current prefects and whole school on key focus areas such as the environment, the local community and mental health awareness. If you see me around, feel free to ask me any questions or just say hello.
Assistant Head of School – Mental Health and Well Being – Alex E
I’m Alex and my role is Head of Mental Health and Well Being. I currently take Psychology, English and Chemistry, and I’m hoping to go on to do Psychology at university, a course that links strongly to my role as senior head prefect. I hope to improve the student experience at Sexey’s through taking action to put more mental health support in place, especially around exam season; being an understanding figure for anyone to talk to as well as putting measures in place so that students can report ways in which wellbeing in our community can be improved.
Assistant Head of School – Sixth Form, Diversity and Inclusion – Tilly B
I’m Tilly and I have been appointed the role of Assistant Head Prefect, with my role specifically focused on diversity and inclusivity. I have been a student at Sexey’s since year 7 and have involved myself in the school community in areas like sports, specifically netball and I am currently studying Maths, Psychology, and History. My aim as an assistant head is to develop our PSHE lessons and assemblies to include a wider range of topics in order to educate the school community, whilst also continuing new traditions like culture day. If you have any suggestions then please share them with me, or any of the other prefects, so we can move forward with your ideas.
Assistant Head of School – Environment – Henry S
Hi, I’m Henry and I am an Assistant Head of School – focusing on the environment. I am studying English Literature, History and Geography. I am interested in attending university, but I have no plans beyond that, except for travel and hopefully lots of money. In my role, I’m working to improve both our school’s environment and the environment local to us. I would like to promote an overall awareness of our green impact, as well as leading various community projects. Specifically, I am interested in the further implementation of recycling bins around the school site and organising litter picks to become more regular. I am hoping to begin planning a community redesign of some of the school’s natural areas (to get involved and keep up to date, make sure to take part in any environmental committee meetings). Look forward to working with you all. 🙂🌳

As I have been at Sexey’s since year 7 and hold great knowledge and experiences at this school, so please come and talk to me at any time about any ideas or concerns you may have, and I will do my best to be a great student voice for you all. I hope to be a helpful, friendly hand for everyone, and am looking forward to influencing our community experiences and friendships over the next year 🙂

I started Air Cadets at around 14, which is a huge part of my life and is helping develop me as a person and towards my hopeful future career. I want to make Year 7 as much as a welcoming place as possible and make sure that it is a brilliant start to their journey at Sexeys School. I look forward to helping any students out and if you have any queries about anything just ask.

Student Head of House Hobhouse – Will G
Hi, my name is Will and I am Head of Hobhouse here at Sexey’s. I am very pleased to have taken on this role and aspire to push Hobhouse forward over the upcoming year in a way that leaves a lasting impact for the future. Boarding since Year 7 means I know and understand many of the ins and outs of school life, which will be beneficial when making decisions regarding the students and the school. In my time here I have discovered that everybody is incredibly friendly, particularly the senior students, an ethos I would like to continue to encourage amongst the student population. An approachable and confident person, I hope to inspire strong positive relations with everyone in the community so that each individual feel included in Sexey’s life. I aim to make Hobhouse the dominant house it should be. I also aim to motivate students in all years participate especially in Bint Shield competitions as well as charitable events and activities. If anyone has any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact me.

I also hope that Glyn Jones will come in a better finishing place that 3rd. I would also like to for the school to become the community it once was when the games were bigger and there was more of a passion for the shield to be one with your house.
