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.
We would like to thank you for all the support recieved in this last months from all Wingate school staff to make sure our children have settled correctly.
They are happy to go to school and confident in their future. We are sure that a great part of this success is due to all Wingate staff, their teachers and everybody at the office have offered all of us their resources and love.
We would like to thank you for this effort.
Our family really likes Wingate school! Before coming I was worried about language barrier and the beginning was not very easy. But now our daughters in the Infants and Juniors feel quite well.
The teacher helps a lot and is very understanding. For the first two weeks she was crying and didn’t want to go to school mostly because of the language barrier but now she says she likes lessons better than breaks.
Our younger daughter likes the school.
As for myself I like the system of the school. If I have questions I can always get the answers from the teachers or in the office.
The enrolment process was very simple to submit via the online website.
All the staff members have been very friendly and helpful. Our older daughter has settled in really well she says it's the best school she's been too (it is her 5th school that she's been to due to us moving house a few times) her teacher is straight forward and firm which is the approach she needs as it works best for her development.
Everything seems very professional and as you would expect from a school in England. All the procedures are in line with how I would expect a school to be eg, uniform policies, regular newsletters, email updates, being able to collect your child from their classroom rather than just all thrown out the same gate, even the headlice checking you do reminds me of my school days, the homework they get set is adequate for their age and she enjoys doing it rather than it being too much and her being tired and not wanting to do it.
The only one downfall of the school is no dinner hall (I know this is something in progress) it's just hard to provide food that would not pose a health risk by being in such hot weather conditions without going "off" our daughters are not fans of sandwiches but thats all I can give her at the moment. Hopefully the dinner hall will be ready while she still has some years left there. But other than that a really good school honestly couldn't fault it so far.
