Welcome to Winstanley

Shine brighter than you thought you could.

Our vision is that everyone in our school will ‘Shine Brighter than they thought they could’. This means that every student and every member of staff is given the opportunity to improve, develop and excel. We have high expectations for our students and want each one to achieve the best they possibly can. We are a small school where every student is known personally and lessons and learning are adapted according to their needs. To reflect this, we have been awarded the Inclusion Quality Mark; one of only two secondary schools in Leicestershire to hold this prestigious award. Working closely with Bosworth Academy as part of the LiFE Multi Academy Trust we are on a journey of  improvement.

Our SHINE values (Supporting others, Hard work, Independence, Never giving up and Excellence), underpin all that we do: from residential trips to additional small group tuition in maths; from charity fundraising to academic university visits; from lunchtime enrichment clubs to holiday revision sessions. Staff, students and parents are united in working together to ensure success for every student. We hope you will be able to find the time to visit Winstanley with your child and please contact my PA should you wish to meet with me to answer any questions you may have.
