Winterstoke Hundred Academy (WHA) is named after the historic parish of Weston-super-Mare. We are a smaller scaler 11-19 academy, offering a curriculum which celebrates prior learning whilst preparing learners for the challenges of the future. We work closely with our family of partner schools in the Trust, and believe strongly in the importance and benefits of collaboration. Winterstoke Hundred has benefited from funding which has enabled an entirely bespoke and brand new additional site to be built less than a mile away, in Locking Parklands. This will open between 2023 and 2024, and will enable the strengths of each site to be enjoyed by all students. This is a particularly exciting time for WHA - as a new academy, in new buildings, and with new students, we are seizing the opportunity to shape the landscape for our learners, to deliver an exceptional educational experience, and to enable them to fulfil their potential.
