INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS SHOW, LONDON
This weekend we are attending the Independent Schools Show in London.
If you saw Warminster School in ITV's recent two-part documentary 'School Swap – the Class Divide', then you will have had an accurate snapshot of the School. We hope that what came across on television is what we pride ourselves on most – a sense of community and a culture of encouragement and participation in which it's ok to struggle or even fail sometimes. What matters is how one responds and bounces back. The programme also highlighted our very clear educational philosophy that what happens outside the classroom is every bit as important as what happens inside it.
We believe that it is our sense of community, mutual support and happy atmosphere that set us apart. Almost everyone who visits us comments on it; it is a vital feature of the School and one that we cherish. It is genuine, authentic and impossible to contrive.
Warminster is a beautiful school, but schools are not, first and foremost, about buildings and facilities but about people and relationships. Being part of a community means that everyone has to contribute and play their part: giving as well as receiving. Well-known for our wonderful family feel and as a school where individuality is encouraged to grow, we provide our pupils with the best of both worlds – a peaceful and rural location, but also a cosmopolitan pupil body that replicates the world into which they are heading.
We are on stand 215 during the show and will be delighted to meet families interested in finding out more about Warminster.
The Show is taking place at Battersea Evolution, Battersea Park, London, SW11 4NJ. Tickets are £15 on the door, advance tickets are FREE if you register online.
