WCSA Committee


WCSA is always looking for more people.

The more people helping the better. More heads equals more ideas. You don't have to attend a meeting to help!

WCSA is for all of us and it is for the benefit of all Winston Churchill pupils.

Some of the WCSA achievements and contributions include:

  • Help Support the very successful annual Year 11 Prom

  • Contributions of educational material and sports equipment


WCSA organises several fund raising events throughout the year. The WCSA will always need helpers at these events, such as helping out on the Refreshment stand during the regular Car Boot Sales.

Please contact us to offer some help.
