Headteacher’s Welcome

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our school. No single document can tell you everything you need to know about a school. In the case of The Wilnecote School, it is even harder to summarise the elements that make it special, as there are so many. It has a long and proud history and remains very much part of the community it serves. It is full of highly committed teachers with a wide range of experience and in-depth subject knowledge. It enjoys energetic and innovative leadership at all levels. It is constantly improving.

The Wilnecote School has a very special place in my heart too. I am committed to continuing to improve the educational experience and academic outcomes of our children. If you were to ask me to distil my own vision for our students, I would borrow the words of Daphne Park,

“The qualities which I would wish for them are courage, stamina, intellectual curiosity, the desire for excellence, an adventurous spirit and above all, an abiding belief in the decency of human beings.”

I know that The Wilnecote School can provide all of these things and so much more

• Committed to the moral imperative of community school improvement and improving all children’s lives.

• Mutually supportive, not in competition and fiercely loyal to each other.

• Equal partners with all other schools irrespective of their phase, size or successes.

• Multi academy trust minded – our schools celebrate the success of others as well as themselves and share accountabilities.

• Financially disciplined and committed to fulfilling their delegated responsibilities to the best of their abilities under a robust governance arrangement.

This culture and ethos ensures your school benefits from shared expertise and support. This means we can maintain our attention to your child’s individual talents and potential.
