Our admissions criteria and process are designed to give parents the confidence that Winstedt has the necessary resources in place to best support each student who joins the school. To be considered for admission for our mainstream curriculum, students must:
-Be at least 4 years old before commencing class.
-Have a basic level of understanding of the English language. Supplemental English support is provided at Winstedt for students who speak English as a second language. (Please note our class environment is conducted entirely in English.)
-Have an average IQ or above to access our mainstream national UK curriculum. We ask that parents submit an Educational Psychology report conducted within the last 2 years.
-Have no primary behavioural or emotional difficulties, unless these are due specifically to academic frustration.
-Have adequate independence to engage in group learning without one-to-one prompting. Winstedt’s focus is on developing independent learners as such we do not provide one-to-one support nor allow the use of Shadow Teachers.
-Be fully toilet independent.
