Preparing to take the next steps in life
We are one of seven secondary schools and a large FE College (Sussex Downs College), which work very closely together on a range of initiatives. Working collaboratively, the schools and college have developed a number of flexible curriculum offers, strategies to support the development of good behaviour, improved transition to college at 16, staff development programmes and a range of other joint activities.
Willingdon has taken a prominent role in leading on many of these, to the benefit of all schools locally. As a recently designated Teaching School, working together with local schools is very much at the heart of our work, impacting on the quality of our provision but also providing a range of development opportunities for new and experienced teachers.
