Arts Award Evening Programme November 2016

On Wednesday 30th November the Performing Arts Faculty will be hosting the 


Arts Award Evening 

2016


"The Arts are about life in all its diversity. They can help our students to see a whole array of problems in a proper perspective. They strengthen human relationships and can make them tolerant and understanding of the attitudes and opinions encountered amongst a variety of people. The Arts encourage the very best in shared experiences of many kinds.

"I hope that this evening you can join with us as we recognise, acknowledge and appreciate the wonderful, inspiring and hugely exhilarating work that our students have created over the last twelve months.

Simon Donaldson
Head of Performing Arts Faculty

Would your company sponsor our football teams? Great opportunity for local business

Sponsorship Opportunity!

The Winston Churchill PE department are currently looking at purchasing some new football kit for the boys’ and girls’ football teams. This presents a fantastic opportunity for any local businesses to be involved in sponsorship. All teams play across the county and often up and down the country so this is a great opportunity for a local business!

Your company would get constant exposure with the company name and/ or logo on shirts, whilst also allowing the students at Winston to have a fantastic new kit to see in next year’s season!
Please do not hesitate to contact us for further discussion!
