Linwood Campus

Linwood Campus is the largest campus spanning both sides of Alma Road in Winton. We are an all-through school with Early Years Classes through to Post 16 classes at The Skills Centre. We cater for a diverse range of student needs and abilities and offer multiple curriculums to meet these needs.

Linwood has a specially equipped food tech room, music room and radio room, sports halls (for PE, dance, and sensory circuits), sensory room, outdoor play spaces, playgrounds, field, and trim trail.

Linwood classes range in size from 8 – 14 students.

School Uniform

Linwood school uniform is only available for online ordering at PMG Schoolwear.

Please note that their stores in New Milton and Poole do not hold stock but you can use their free Click & Collect service to save on postage costs (you will need to make an appointment to collect).

It is recommended to buy online before 12th August – after that date uniform may not be with you in time for the new term.

Please label items of school uniform with your child’s name using name tags or a permanent marker pen. This will enable us to return items that have been found around the school.

Please contact your child’s class teacher or Phase Leader if you have any concerns about school uniform.
