September 2019 sees the end of another busy summer. New toilet facilities with more toilets were constructed which have hot water for hand washing and a new filtration system providing potable drinking water inside and out. We have installed a top-of-the-range water filtration system as a way to reduce the ecological footprint of the school. Children do not need to bring in disposable plastic water bottles, and a reusable drinks container can be ordered from the school office. A new wider staircase to the classrooms above was constructed. The Sixth Form has been re-branded as Wingate Sixth Form Study Centre and it has already been commented on how much smarter in appearance the Sixth Form Students are.
After our parental survey last April, we took note of your comments and have responded by introducing healthy hot food at lunchtimes – the children are enjoying the menu and are returning for second helpings! Designs for a new dining room are underway. After-school sporting activities are to begin at the end of September as will a number of enrichment activities at lunchtimes. Please contact the school office if you wish to partake in any of these new initiatives.
New software packages have been added to the school: "Gooseberry Planet" is a wonderful new software designed specifically for school children to further improve the teaching and learning of Internet Safety from Year 1 students all the way to Year 11 in a fun and interactive way. Parents will learn more directly as the software is rolled out across the school. We also acquired "Unifrog", which is a fantastic careers based software. It is a great tool aimed at supporting Years 9 to 13 and is designed to help the decision making process involved with their career and university choices. Based on their unique skills and interests, it guides them to help carefully plan for their future after Wingate.
The new IGCSE Exam numeric grading system has been adopted by some subjects and I am pleased to say it was a smooth transition. Our website in the Secondary section has a detailed explanation of our exam system. I am particularly delighted for our Year 13 students whose A Level results were outstanding. An exceptional group of young men and women achieved entry to top universities in the UK and Europe including Imperial, Warwick, Manchester, Glasgow and Leiden, Holland. The exam results and analysis can be found on our website in the Secondary and Sixth Form areas.
Every April the school has a charity week where students arrange various charity events to raise money for causes that they hold close to their hearts.
If you would like your charity to be amongst these please send details to firstname.lastname@example.org the students will then elect 3 charities to support during this designated week.
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.
