Preparing for High School

Dates to Remember


Principal's Message


Sir Winston Churchill has been named the Greatest Briton of all time. Churchill is among the most influential figures of the 20th Century. He has been celebrated as one of the greatest statesmen in history. He was the courageous and inspiring Prime Minister of Great Britain during World War II. As a writer, he won the Noble Prize in Literature for his lifetime body of work. Apart from his great political and literary contributions, Churchill was an accomplished painter, soldier and gifted orator.
Our namesake gives us much to be proud of and fuels our ambitions. Sir Winston Churchill High School is a place where compassion, choice and challenge abound, in keeping with our school motto “non scholae sed vitae” (we learn, not for school, but for life). Our vision is to help students become competent, caring, productive and responsible adults living successfully in a democratic society.
We believe “the greatest influence on student progression in learning is having highly expert, inspired and passionate teachers working together with school leaders to maximize the effect of their teaching on all students in their care” (Hattie). With a student population of about 2200 and a teaching faculty of over 100, we offer a rich and robust range of programing. Our diverse learning population requires a comprehensive approach. Therefore, our Resource Program offers a broad range of supports including a school psychologist and Graduation Coach. Our International Baccalaureate program is the first of its kind in Canada. We have one of the largest International programs with over a hundred students attending from around the world. Our vast program extends beyond the traditional classroom walls to include extra-curricular opportunities in athletics, arts, music, clubs, Model UN and Debate.
Students at Sir Winston Churchill are encouraged to participate in their choice of activities. It is our belief that programs both in and out of the classroom support a strong sense of community while enriching the high school experience for individual students.
Together we endeavour to educate, inspire, nurture and celebrate our future generations. We Are Churchill!
Arvin Rajan, Principal
