Things have been hectic here at Wingate during the summer. Summer school was a first for us at Wingate and was fantastic. 5 new classrooms have been built to accommodate the expansion of the school as well as welcoming 9 new teachers!!
We are really excited about this academic year and have many new projects and exciting things planned. We are introducing our student charter to give the responsibility of behaviour and conduct to the students.
We set our targets and they work hard to maintain and achieve them, to stretch and challenge everyone within the school.
Peer mentoring and buddy systems to welcome new members to the Wingate family as well as maintaining our Outstanding standards and expectations.
Exam results have been excellent again this year in all areas of the school from assessments in EYFS to SATs in Primary and A Levels, and IGCSE´s in Seniors.
Some changes have been made to make the school operationally safer (car parking and increased bus service) as we encourage you to utilise the bus service to avoid congestion around the school campus,especially at home time. We have improved the IT systems within school to increase internet service and make studying at Wingate a quicker and more efficient process. New qualifications begin this year in years 10 and 12 as we introduce BTEC Art and Design, Performing Arts and IT. These qualifications are widely recognised and give a firm basis to build careers and work ethics in the chosen areas ready for working in that industry. We will see you all back in school on Wednesday 6th September and look forward to welcoming you at the gates.
AMAZING EXAM RESULTS
We are very happy to share our IGCSE and A Level exam results with you. The students and teachers should be very proud of themselves.
Wingate School’s IGCSE results are just fantastic. Well done to all the pupils and teachers who worked so hard to achieve these grades.
An amazing 88% of our grades were a C or above. What is even more impressive is that our A-A* results are almost DOUBLE the UK average.
Have a look at the table below to see our stats and how they compare to the National UK average.
Well done everyone!
Our A Level results were even more impressive.
We are delighted to report our A Level results for 2022/23 with 100% pass rates for all our Year 13 students.
37% of students gained A* or A grades whilst 10% gained A* grades. Both are above national averages in the UK.
Our A-C grades are 80% which again is above national averages and maintains Wingate’s “Outstanding” status in terms of outcomes for students in the inspection frameworks. We also have 100% progression into university or further study and wish all our students all the best for the future.
