At Winston...

Assemblies this Week

Mrs Markham delivered a thought-provoking session on the theme of Remembrance.

The Dome Arrives

The eight, carefully engineered sections of the planetarium dome arrived in school on Wednesday.  They will be stored while the base is built on the newly finished floor and the windows are fitted.  progress with this project is now highly visible and I am now able to start the process of ordering the items of furniture and kit required to ensure that it is fully operational as soon as possible!

Learning Review

Parents and students met with their teachers this week to look at how to improve learning both inside and beyond the classroom.  Year 7 and 8 focussed on the Winston Competencies and how developing these key skills will support their progress throughout their time now and after Winston.  Year 11, with only 6 months to their final examinations, have looked at their need to prioritise their time, maximise lessons and engage in the intervention programme available.
