Wharton C E Junior School
Greville Drive, CW7 3EP, UK Winsford
Tel. 01606 592053

Wharton CE Junior School entranceThe new Wharton CE Junior School building was completed in 1998 on a greenfield site just off Greville Drive. Bishop Michael of Birkenhead and Mr. D. Newton, Chairman of Cheshire County Council officially opened the new school building.

The new school is built in the shape of a cross, has ten classrooms, a multipurpose hall , a large library and extensive playing fields.

In 2003 the school hosted a celebration to mark the 5th birthday of the new building and the presentation of the Arts Mark Gold Award. As part of the celebration the Bishop of Birkenhead dedicated a new sculpture ‘Stones of Life, Journey of Silver' by Lorna Green. The sculpture now graces the entrance to our school grounds.

The school not only has close links with Leaf Lane our partner infant school and Verdin High School but works with all schools in the town as part of the Winsford Education Partnership.

History of Wharton School

Wharton C.E. Junior School is of National school foundation, built in 1846. Queen Victoria and the then Archbishop of Canterbury donated money for the project. Wharton Schools, as they were, comprised of three schools on the same site. Each school had its own building, head teacher and staff- they were Wharton Infant School, Wharton Girls School (7yrs-14yrs) and Wharton Boys School (7yrs-14yrs). The schools were situated in a triangle of land between School Road and Wharton Road.

Our present school has mementoes of this early Victorian-Edward period with a Victorian sampler, photographs of the 'Girls at the turn of the century' and a Boer War Memorial in brass to a former pupil. Even more poignantly there is a large First World War Memorial to all the school's old boys who fell in the great conflict.

These arrangements continued until after the Second World War when the secondary school age children, boys and girls went to the new secondary school in Winsford. Wharton C of E Primary School was created when the secondary children left for their new school.

Winsford grew in the 1960's and the infants left the existing site to their new purpose built school in Leaf Lane, Wharton. The junior boys and girls were left in the Wharton school site, which continued to provide for their education.

Concerns grew with the school ability to provide the necessary accommodation to meet the demands of the National Curriculum and an expanding school population. There were safety concerns as well with some children being escorted across School Road to the playgrounds throughout the school day. The Victorian planners had also forgotten to provide any school field.


We inspect and regulate:

to achieve excellence in the care of children and young people, and in education and skills for learners of all ages.

The Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills came into being on 1 April 2007. The new organisation brings together the wide experience of four inspectorates in order to make a greater difference for every child, and for all young people and adult learners. With parents and employers, these are the key users of the services we inspect and regulate. We shall listen to what they tell us. Their educational, economic and social well-being will promote the success of England as a country.

We shall communicate our findings from regulatory visits and inspection to those who have an interest in our work, including providers of care, education and training; administrators and policy-makers. In doing so, we aim to improve current provision and outcomes, to raise aspirations and to contribute to a longer term vision for achieving ambitious standards.

We report impartially, without fear or favour, demonstrating integrity in all we do. But we work closely with partners and stakeholders, including government departments and other agencies, to make sure that our inspection and regulation are used to realise our vision.

To contribute to improving services and their outcomes for users we will report with impartiality and integrity. We will communicate our findings with, and listen to, all who have an interest in improving them, from service providers to policy-makers. We want to raise aspirations and contribute to a longer term vision for achieving ambitious standards.
