Welcome from our Founder
The Winstedt School began as a small private practice (formally known as Learn Different) in 2002 by its founder, and third generation Singaporean, Sharon Solomon.
My experiences as a student and teacher have helped shape my decision to provide equal opportunities for those who learn differently, here in Singapore. After teaching both in the private and public sector for several years, and partnering with the Dyslexia Association of Singapore (DAS) to set up its first ever library catering to the dyslexic reader, the vision for The Winstedt School was born.
Many of today's learners are in this conundrum because of the limitations imposed in traditional classrooms and how students are stereotyped. The Winstedt School challenges conventional thinking by creating an inclusive, comprehensive support system designed with every student’s strengths and needs. Individualised attention, small student- teacher classes, selective curricula and equal emphasis on the soft skills can only result in all round success of our students. It is our responsibility as educators.
Our approach is unique and innovative – just like our students! Our students develop into confident, thoughtful and impressionable young adults, with a strong sense of self-worth and self-awareness. Many of our graduates have been accepted in competitive high schools across the globe and continue to succeed in a broad range of subjects including the arts, sports and sciences. Their success is an important testimony of the work we do.
As the Founder of The Winstedt School, I am proud of our students, faculty and parents who add depth to the TWS spirit and beliefs. I encourage you to visit our school to understand who we are and what makes us live up to our philosophy and drives our mission.
We look forward to welcoming you at The Winstedt School.
