Vinnie Phillips, Head Boy
I am extremely honoured and proud to have been awarded this accolade at the Best Boys Secondary School in Bournemouth!
When I joined Winton Academy I quickly embraced and enjoyed the “GW Way”: clear behaviour boundaries and consistency made me feel safe and well respected by my peers.
The amazing support from great teachers helped me realise that with hard work, passion and determination, I could reach my full potential not only academically but on the sports fields too.
Every class gets disruption free learning to help achieve the highest grades possible. All the teachers are approachable, kind and always happy to help, contactable whenever you need them.
The Academies offer a huge range of opportunities to play sports such as Rugby, Football, Handball, Cricket, Athletics, etc. Across the year groups our teams have performed to a high level, being involved in national competitions. On a personal note, I was put forward for County
Rugby Trials by my PE teacher which resulted in me selected and even being Captain on the last match of the season.
In conclusion, I can highly recommend Winton Academy as it is truly an OUTSTANDING school that will strive to inspire students to be the best they can academically and beyond.
