‘Pupils make good progress and the teaching in Maths is especially strong’ Ofsted 2018

‘The inspirational headteacher’s vision and clear determination have been pivotal in improving the school. Leaders and staff are committed to the school’s continued improvement’ Ofsted 2018

Winton Community Academy is a community where inspirational teaching, self-evaluation and self-improvement are evident from the moment you enter our school.  

Our students are diverse, exciting and talented – and the same is true of our staff.  We put huge emphasis on professional development, most of it in-house, and are proud of the high number of good and outstanding teachers who work in our school.  We are also noted for our ‘can do’ attitude.  We are keen, always, to encourage new and/or young staff to make their mark as soon as they are ready.

We are proud to serve the communities around Andover in the centre of Hampshire, a short commute from Winchester, Salisbury and many picturesque Hampshire villages. . Ofsted judged us as a ‘good academy’ in January 2018 and our Headteacher Nathan Thomas as ‘an inspirational leader’.

In 2017 we celebrated just under 60% of our students obtaining 4+s in either English and maths.   We know that they can do even better. We want Winton to lead the way in teaching excellence and for all our staff and students to develop their maximum potential. Get on board and make a real difference to our children and to your career. 

We are keen to enhance teaching capacity and teaching standards both in the Academy and in Hampshire. We work with teacher training centres in the area with huge success.

  • Have access to outstanding training, both regionally and nationally
  • Join a fantastic Maths forum, sharing ideas with schools all over the country
