Year 6 into Year 7
Transition at WPSA
Dear Parents/Carers and students,
I am delighted to be able to welcome you to Warden Park Secondary Academy. It is a real privilege to be Headteacher of a school with such a strong and enviable tradition for high standards in academic achievement and excellence in sports, the arts and charitable community projects.
As Headteacher my focus is on helping students achieve their potential. I strongly believe that education has the power to transform lives and must therefore be focused on empowering young people; developing them personally, socially and emotionally, as well as academically, and crucially igniting in them a passion for learning that will sustain them throughout their lives. Here at Warden Park Secondary Academy we are therefore committed to offering the highest quality education to our students, an education that is rich in variety and opportunity, that fully embraces digital technologies and that develops our students into confident and aspirational young adults ready to thrive in their academic, work and personal lives in the years beyond the Academy.
The outstanding relationships that exist between teachers, students, parents and carers and the local community sit at the very heart of our successes and this strong bond provides students with a firm foundation on which to grow and develop. Through this relationship we ensure that our students are fully supported in their learning and development and complete Year 11 having made outstanding progress and feeling proud of their many achievements.
My expectations of our students in terms of their achievement and conduct are very high. I expect all students to work hard, to be ambassadors of the school, to wear their uniform and represent the Academy with pride and to display the highest standards of behaviour in and beyond the Academy and I look forward to working in partnership with you to achieve this.
I hope to meet many of you at events throughout the school year and I look forward to welcoming you and your child into the Academy.
Welcome to all of our new parents and students!
It gives us great pleasure to welcome everyone to Warden Park Secondary Academy. Starting in Year 7 at secondary school can be both very exciting and scary. It is quite natural to feel nervous about making new friends, getting lost and organising a much larger number of subjects. We will do everything we can to make the change of school as easy as possible for you and hopefully this website will help you feel part of WPSA before you arrive.
Please be reassured that despite the challenges that we are all facing in recent times, we are committed to helping all of our new students settle in and feel happy at our school. We hope that the resources on this website help to answer some of your questions.
If you are kind and do your best, there really is no need to worry at all.
We are very much looking forward to meeting you in September!
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like further information.
Mrs C O'Brien
Head of Year 7
