Life at Wingate goes beyond the classroom as we guide our students’ transition from childhood to adulthood during their time in our care

As we guide our students through their growth we provide an innovative curriculum, extra-curricular activities and excursions in a caring community. We believe in a child’s educational and emotional development. Read on to learn more about life at Wingate.

Curriculum

We pride ourselves that our curriculum goes beyond academic objectives, at Wingate we focus on each individual child

We prepare our students for life after school, not just by giving them a broad and well balanced education but also by instilling correct values and attitudes to give them the best start in life. We nurture a love of learning, alongside a stimulating and inspiring learning journey to achieve these goals.

At Wingate we follow the National Curriculum set out by the Department for Education of the British Government. This curriculum is under constant revision by educational experts and is kept modern and suited to preparing children for higher studies or employment later on in their lives.

Green Park Recreational Area

Introducing the new Green Park Recreational Area at Wingate

We are excited to announce a new recreational area and all the possibilities that come along with it. Whether it will be a chance for students and teachers to create new clubs or what it will add to the activities available at Wingate School. There will be options for our students to participate with their peers in a game of table tennis, giant chess, volleyball, badminton or play some golf on our putting green. They will also be given the chance to take a step back and withdraw to a quiet corner to either study or read a book.

Wingate also has a basketball court, an indoor theatre, and extensive use of the local astroturf football pitch.

Innovation and sustainability

Wingate School is always actively working to improve and provide a sustainable and innovative community for our students

Wingate is one of the first schools to go all digital in Tenerife. Digital learning tools in classrooms can increase student engagement, help teachers improve their lesson plans, and facilitate personalised learning. Helping students to build essential modern day skills using technological advancements such as Unifrog and Gooseberry planet, the latter to give children a fun way of learning how to use the internet as safely as possible.

Our commitment to the cause

In 2016 we had solar panels installed allowing Wingate to be almost 100% sustainable and changed all lighting to energy efficient LED light bulbs, we teach students how to recycle, we strive to be paperless and Wingate has installed a hot looped running water saving on a lot of water per day. Our students are taught about respect for the environment through initiatives such as our “Biologists for one day - whale watching excursion" and our frequent beach clean ups.
