The Winstanley School Open Hands Appeal 201719th Jan, 2018-Students have been collecting much needed food and toiletries for the charity Open Hands. Each tutor Group has made a hamper of items which will be given to a family in need or to homeless people over the Christmas period. Students have put a lot of thought into the items they have included and their generosity has been amazing. We collected over 20 boxes of food which were collected on the 15th December, the project has been co-ordinated by Mrs Boyce our Religious Studies teacher. The project has been jointly run with Bosworth Academy and students from both schools have visited the charity to understand the difference these hampers will make to people in need.
Career Mark Renewal 20174th Aug, 2017-Having been re-awarded the coveted Career Mark in 2017 in recognition of outstanding support in careers guidance and advice, Bosworth Academy students continue to benefit from world class support in careers planning. We successfully went through revalidation of the award which we achieved for the first time in 2015. The process was rigorous and involved interviews with a wide range of students as well as with the Careers leader Mrs Marie Delage-Martin. “As a school we strongly value careers education, and employability skills are firmly embedded into the curriculum”, says Mrs Delage-Martin, “we have very good links with the UK top universities and working relationships with many of the regions best employers”. We are delighted that the quality of Careers Education and Guidance we deliver at the Academy has been once again recognised by a prestigious external organisation.
