School Notes

  • "Many of our parents tell us that their lives at home have completely changed because their child is finally confident in reading. They say their child is no longer struggling with homework, they feel loved and supported at school and have become confident learners - and that they wish they had found Winston sooner."  Dr. Josephine Diemond, Head of School
