The Winsford Academy

About This School

At Winsford Academy we consider ourselves privileged to be in the position of helping to shape young lives in our community and we take this responsibility very seriously. We aim to instil a sense of pride in our students and to build a school community built on trust, mutual respect and with an aspiration to be 'the best that we can be.' At Winsford Academy you will find a welcoming and purposeful environment, with relationships built on mutual respect. We have an exceptionally strong pastoral team, underpinning our academic drive, to ensure our young people feel supported, cared for and guided to achieve their potential. At the Winsford Academy, we strive to deliver a broad and exciting Art and Design curriculum that nurtures creativity and self -expression, supporting learners to become resilience, confident critical thinkers. We believe that every learner deserves a curriculum that prepares them to look at the world around them objectively, we introduce pupils to a range of themes and contexts beyond their day to day experiences, ensuring that pupils are provided with the tools to make connections between abstract concepts and themselves. Throughout our curriculum learners are actively encouraged to take risks and experiment, embracing mistakes to make future progress. We firmly believe that our Art and Design curriculum allows pupils to visually express themselves by providing structures for learners to translate their own mood, ideas and opinions safely, making our curriculum inclusive for all.
