Taster Day (Virtual or in person)

To help you reach a final decision about which subjects to study, we’re delighted to invite you to our Taster Day which will take place on Friday 2nd July. To guarantee the opportunity for every student to experience live lessons from Winstanley teachers, we will be hosting a Virtual Taster Day between 9:15-1:00pm. Lessons will be taking place via our new virtual platform which will enable you to experience the subjects you wish to sample and interact with the teachers live. On the same day we hope to welcome students for an onsite taster day if they prefer, providing government guidance permits. We will schedule a timetable around your provisional subject choices and create an onsite experience which is safe and supportive for all students. We will contact you in June with further details.
