Our Philosophy

At Winpenny School our philosophy is to solidify and practice consistent and positive guidance techniques. In an environment that contributes to the well-being of the whole child, we strive to develop each child into a well-balanced individual. We provide a nurturing place, which promotes learning as a lifelong process, and enables each child to be an educated, confident, self-directed, and productive contributor in tomorrow’s world.

We believe that children have enormous potential and curiosity. A child’s knowledge needs to be accessed using their natural curiosity. They strive to understand the world, making up their own theories to explain how it functions. We feel that each person creates their own intelligence from direct interaction with their surroundings.

Our approach to learning is eclectic. It is a way of reaching out to children and working with them. This demands a high level of teacher involvement and commitment.

Our mission

Our mission is to educate all children in a supportive, challenging, disciplined and positive environment, with rigorous academic study, together with the incorporation of advanced technology.

We encourage children to be independent, responsible, and creative thinkers whilst nurturing each area of child development. We reinforce core values and good manners and aim to send well-educated, moral citizens out into the world. We strongly believe our education builds self-esteem in the individual. It embraces diversity, fosters a sense of self-worth and responsibility, and encourages lifelong learning.

Our vision

Winpenny School’s purpose from its beginnings, and for its future, has been to work towards a school with high academic standards, understanding the uniqueness and individuality of every child, incorporating core values and skills in a caring learning environment, that are necessary to prepare our pupils for their adult life in what is an ever changing, competitive world.

Winpenny School is a relatively new school, and we are heading into the future with state of the art technology, combined with high academics, to become one of the leaders in our field.

Our goals

In order to achieve our goals, as a school we must:

  • Provide a happy environment that is loving, caring, nurturing and supportive, in which children can feel secure, and can realize their own self-worth.
  • Provide a stimulating and balanced curriculum, along with alternative styles and teaching techniques, that enables children to be motivated, interested, and reach their fullest potential.
  • Instill a sense of self-respect and self-confidence in each child, leading to satisfaction and personal fulfillment, encouraging respect in their dealings with each other and their elders.
  • Forge links with our community through social work and events.
  • Reinforce positive attitudes towards academics, personal and social progress.
  • Encourage new and existing leisure interests in order to develop the whole person.
