About Winchcombe School
Winchcombe School is a mixed secondary school for children aged 11-16. Located in an area of outstanding natural beauty in Winchcombe, Gloucestershire, the school was formerly a foundation school but converted to academy status in June 2011. There are less than 500 students on the school roll.
The facilities on offer at Winchcombe School are continually being improved and land has been acquired adjacent to the school to nearly double the size of the school playing fields. Other enhancements in recent times have included the extension and refurbishment of the school hall and an overhaul of its computer network structure to facilitate the delivery of the latest ICT technologies to pupils.
Values and vision
Winchcombe School aims for excellence and is committed to providing every opportunity for pupils of all abilities to achieve their full academic potential, supporting every individual to develop personally, physically, socially and spiritually.
The school wants to ensure that every pupil feels safe, supported, confident and happy. Its vision is both to build a learning partnership between pupils, parents, staff and governors and to work to make a positive, constructive, compassionate and valuable contribution to the local and global community.
