Book a Tour

Our rationale

Whether you have a child due to start school in September 2022, are new to the area and considering schools or looking at Winton as a potential school for your child we believe the best way to make an informed decision is to come and take a look around.  We don't hold specific Open Events as we want you to see the school, as it is, on an ordinary day.  This is the best way to get a feel for the school and decide whether it is right for you and your family.  Our belief in this being the best way means that we invest the time in running daily tours, Monday to Friday at 9.30am, 11am and 1.30pm.  Tours run from October through to June and can be booked by contacting the school directly with your preferred dates and times.  Most tours are carried out by Neil Tarchetti, Headteacher or in his absence another senior member of staff.  Tours are for no more than three families at a time as we find this allows people to ask the questions that they want to, whilst ensuring that the school can genuinely run as normal whilst the tours are conducted.  Because tours are limited to a small group size, when you get in touch please have a few different days or times that you can do.

The challenge this year

For 5 years we have run tours in this way and we now face a unique challenge which has meant we have had to make a few changes for the 2020-21 academic year.  Whilst we cannot accept visitors to school we want to give you the experience we have described above.  This is because we genuinely believe in this approach and want to make it work despite the challenges of Covid 19.  Therefore when you book your tour we will then email you the details of a virtual tour followed by a small group face to face virtual meeting with our headteacher.  The time slots for the meeting remain the same as above and will give you the opportunity to ask the questions that you want to even if they are specific to your child. 

So despite the unusual circumstances please do get in touch to book your personal appointment. The school office can be contacted by using the "Contact" tab at the top of the page.  Please give them a call or send an email to and we will get you booked in to come and look around and see what learning at Winton really looks like!
