As a prospective parent, you will have no doubt agonised over the choices available to you in mid-Cheshire regarding which secondary school to send your child to. We are fortunate in mid-Cheshire to have a wide selection of good secondary schools to choose from.

The Winsford Academy is one of those.

In this section of our website, we provide you with a range of documents to read through to help inform your decision. There is, however, no substitute for a visit to the academy during a normal school day where you can see at first hand our orderly, well-focused and happy learning environment. You will not be disappointed and if you’ve already made the decision to send your child to the academy, you will be utterly reassured and filled with confidence by what you see. If you’re still considering us an option, we guarantee that we’ll give you plenty of food for thought and make this tough decision even more difficult!
