Welcome !!!

Wincle School was founded in 1861 on the deed of gift of £500 from Mrs J R Daintry of North Rode, which enabled the building of a spacious school room and school house, which still form the major part of Wincle School premises today. More recently, in the sixties, the original building was extended to provide an additional classroom, cloakroom facilities, kitchen and offices.

Major renovation of the school house took place nine years ago, enabling the creation of separate Infant and Junior classrooms, a hall/dining area, a kiln room, additional office space and a medical area. An outdoor adventure play area was constructed four years ago to further enhance our facilities. Earlier this year a reception play area was built to give the very youngest children access to the outdoors throughout the school day.

With the closure of Wildboarclough and Macclesfield Forest schools some years ago, Wincle became the sole educational facility for children in this widespread, rural area of South Cheshire and now caters for the needs of pupils in the 4 to 11 age range. We are pleased that you are considering Wincle School for your child's education and trust that you will find the information in this prospectus helpful.


We are proud to be a happy school with a firm Christian foundation. Everyone here is valued, trusted and respected. We work together to provide a caring secure environment which facilitates learning, understanding and achievement. We encourage the pursuit of excellence so that children can fulfil their own potential and our high expectations.


Recognising its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church at parish and diocesan level. The school aims to serve its community by providing education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers all its pupils.

  • We aim to work together to create a happy and secure environment in which all children develop confidence, care and respect for others, and achieve their full potential in all areas.
  • We aim to develop good moral values and encourage and value diversity.
  • We aim to help all children become literate and numerate and confident independent learners.
  • We aim to encourage everyone to make healthy life choices and to make a positive contribution.
  • We aim to give all staff access to appropriate and continuous professional development, and to promote and encourage governor training.
  • We aim to encourage everyone to make healthy life choices and to make a positive contribution.
  • These aims were drawn up by the staff and governors of the school and are intended to remind us at all times of what we wish to achieve for the children of Wincle School. The views of parents and children were also taken into account in writing these aims.
  • The School Improvement Plan will show how we will achieve these aims.


Children enter school at the beginning of the school year in which they will become five and transfer to Secondary School at eleven. We maintain close links with secondary schools in Macclesfield and Congleton.

We have two classes in school - one for Key Stage 1 (Infants - Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) and one for Key Stage 2 (Juniors - Years 3, 4, 5 and 6). There are currently 48 children on roll.

The school prides itself on retaining the virtues of a small rural primary school, where a "family" atmosphere prevails within a structured and disciplined environment. The pupil/teacher ratio, currently about 1: 12 - enables a level of personal care which is the envy of many state and independent schools.

Our commitment to individualised learning within small classes will continue and parents can be assured that a happy and supportive environment will be maintained at Wincle School.

Wincle Primary School, having achieved all the requirements of the National Standard, has been recognised as an Investor in People. In 2005 it also achieved the Healthy Schools award.

  • A child's absence should be reported to school either by note, telephone call or personal message. Please ring the school office by 9.30 a.m. on the first day of absence.
  • The school newsletter is sent out every other Friday. We try not to send letters out at other times, but sometimes this is unavoidable.


Wincle prides itself on the breadth and depth of its curriculum. All subjects in the national curriculum are taught as a basic entitlement and religious education has a prominent role, as befits our status as a Church of England Aided school.

Our principle aim as a school is to create a happy, secure and stimulating environment in which all children develop confidence, care and respect for others and achieve their full potential in all areas.
