Work in the Easter Break

Police Dogs Train

I was delighted to welcome the Surrey Police Dog Training Team to Winston during the Easter break.  They will be using the school as a regular training ground throughout the year.  This is essential training in a real working environment and I believe that it is important to support the work of the police, who do an incredibly difficult job for us all.

Painting and Decorating

The work never stops at Winston and the team have been busy with both repairs and developments.  The holiday periods are essential for major works and as you can see from the images below some significant improvements have been made this Easter.
 New Year 7 Office and Meeting Room.
 All steps have been reset and yellow step nosing put in place.

 The sliding door onto the patio has a new more efficient mechanism and safety barriers. 
The Geography Office has been fitted with new carpet, following the flood in the Autumn Term.

Examination Support

Teachers have been in school, throughout the Easter holiday delivering focussed revision and examination preparation sessions for students facing their GCSE examinations this summer.  With only a few weeks to go our teachers were really pleased with the commitment that the students have shown towards these new and more challenging examinations.  English classrooms were full and students also came in to go through a higher and foundation maths paper in the hall.  There were a considerable number of teachers in school, from all subject areas, supporting students to gain the best possible grades and I thank them for giving up their time to make a difference to our young people.
