Did you know a Winstanley student has stepped foot on every continent in the world apart from Antarctica… and do you know what, we would if we could!

World Challenge

World Challenge is a skills-based experiential learning programme allowing challengers to travel to far-flung parts of the globe. As part of these expeditions' challengers complete project work, for example, construction and teaching, spend time trekking through mountains and jungle as well as having some time for rest and relaxation. Staff and students have completed trips to exotic places including the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador, Venezuela, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Mozambique, Sri Lanka, China, and Thailand. Upcoming expeditions include a trip to Nepal 2024 & South Africa 2025. All students that attend Winstanley College have an opportunity to sign up for a World Challenge Expedition.

Departments run a wide range of trips in both the UK and to international destinations that you can take part in. Some examples of previous trips are listed below:
