Winchmore School 2016

Winchmore School is a large mixed comprehensive school in Enfield, North London. We are an Arts College, priding ourselves on outstanding achievement and participation in the arts. Our motto is ‘learning to realise potential’; we strive in everything we do as students, teachers and parents to be the best we can be and achieve everything we want to.
We are a community school, proud to engage our local community in
learning and extra-curricular activities (for example, inviting local
primary schools to participate in Arts Week; a week long series of
events with the title ‘Proud to be a part of Winchmore’). The drama
department is committed to providing high quality opportunities for all
students; allowing them to express themselves in a creative and
individual way. We believe that RWiSDA will not only be an exciting
opportunity for our students but also one which develops their skills
in drama and provides a much needed harness for focusing them in the
right direction.
