September 2018 sees the end of a very busy summer. To the north of the school we have a lovely new entrance, staff and bus car park. This should hopefully free up space in the south car parks making life much easier at the beginning and end of the school day. The Sixth Form Common room was expanded and renovated to accommodate our growing Sixth Form. Indeed, we have almost 500 students from ages 3 to 18 from 23 different nationalities. Lots of exciting expansion plans are in the pipeline and I will advise you of them as they progress.
A victim of our own success sees our Early Years and Infant School remaining heavily over-subscribed. Though in all years, classes are growing rapidly. So, if you wish your child to study in Wingate School, I suggest early registration. Our comprehensive website has all the information you need.
I am delighted to announce that our exam results are once again far higher than UK percentages. I offer my congratulations to four AS Level students who achieved 100% in one or more of their individual Science subject exam modules. Two IGCSE students also achieved 100% in their English Literature exam. The exam results can be found in the Secondary and Sixth Form sections of our website.
However, though our exam results are important, what will always be at the core of Wingate School are the family values and sense of belonging which have always been nurtured here and echoed in our mission statement. When Mr & Mrs Green started our school 36 years ago, those values were the very foundation of the school and even as we continue to grow, Wingate will always be a family school.
Wingate follows the UK National Curriculum with added Spanish and Spanish Studies. All lessons are delivered in English except Spanish. I should point out that we do not teach English, we teach in English. All new students other than in Nursery and Reception, must have at least an elementary level of English to join Wingate School.
If you wish to visit our lovely school, please contact the Office and make an appointment. We will be delighted to show you around and sincerely hope you will entrust us with your children.
Thank you for the email enquiring about how Zoë found the intake process at Wingate. I'm pleased to say that Zoë seems to have settled in well at Wingate and has made some friends. She is happy to come to school in the mornings and is now feeling more comfortable in lessons and with the level of teaching.
The administration department has been very professional and efficient and responded quickly to any enquiries I have made. The enrollment process was easy to follow especially as we were applying from overseas.
Muchas gracias por su interés en Georgia.
Solo comunicarles que está muy feliz en el colegio y su primer dia de llegada a casa le dijo a su padre que había sido el mejor dia de su vida.
Una vez mas muchas gracias por la ayuda que hemos recibido con los niños por parte del equipo del colegio.
Thank you very much for your interest in Georgia.
Just to let you know that she is very happy at school and after arriving home from her first day of school she told her father that it had been the best day of her life.
Once again, thank you very much for the help we have received with the children from the school office.
