Winstanley’s history helps to shape its future

Winstanley College is a dynamic, forward-thinking sixth form, constantly seeking excellence.

The college is deep rooted in history, with its origins tracing back over 350 years to the old Upholland Grammar School. The institution always strived to be the best in the area and numerous headteachers fought for each and every student to be the best they could be.

Fast-forward to now and the college continues to follow the mantra of old and consistently ranks as one of the best sixth form colleges in the North West.

To pay homage to the efforts made both then and now by all involved to be successful, Winstanley College has brought its history into the 21 Century and designed a striking new logo. This is based on the original 1977 Winstanley crest (bottom right) and former Upholland Grammar School crest (top right).

Winstanley’s new logo depicts a rampant white lion originating from the Holland family crest, which signifies the college’s strength and determination to succeed and also features the three core values that college lives by: Excellence, Support and Inspiration. The college has used its new emblem to completely rebrand its identity including the introduction of a brand new website.

Despite a change in image, its core ethos remains the same. Winstanley College will always endeavour to be a place where all students achieve excellence in a supportive and inspirational environment. To find out more about the college’s interesting history you can visit its website:
