The Winston Churchill School is a comprehensive, secondary school in Woking, England. The school was established in 1967. It is near Knaphill, Bisley, West End, Brookwood and Pirbright. The school holds Specialist Sports College status.[1]

Academics[edit]

The Ofsted in 2007 report concluded that the Winston Churchill School was:

A good school which not only enables students to achieve high academic standards but also to develop into mature, well-rounded young people prepared for the next stage of their education and life.[2]

Although that the school's rate of unauthorised absence is 1.4% compared to 1.1% locally, GCSE results are higher than those achieved locally and nationally.[3]

Organisation[edit]

Teaching occurs during one-hour lessons with P.E. lessons twice a week (more frequent for P.E. GCSE students) with extra sport, P.E. and "enrichment" style activities (in the form of after-school clubs).
