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.
Life at Winstanley is driven by our SHINE values (Supporting others, Hard work, Independence, Never giving up and Excellence). Our overall aim is to promote wellbeing and widen horizons and SHINE is pivotal in creating the climate in which every student can succeed. We aim to inspire our learners to prepare for a future that is ever changing and demands high levels of flexibility and imagination. We unashamedly have high expectations of our students, as well as ourselves, and expect them to have similar expectations of themselves and others too.
