Developing Personal Excellence
Welcome to Willingdon Community School
On behalf of the students, staff and governors of Willingdon Community School, I should like to give you a very warm welcome to our website and invite you to explore its content.
Emily Beer - Headteacher
Here at Willingdon Community School we’re busy fundraising by collecting old British or foreign coins and notes, even obsolete currency. Initially, you'll see lots of posters around the school as well as the collection bucket. Once all the currency has been collected we send it to www.cash4coins.co.uk who exchanges it into cash we can use. The bucket will be here all year so keep it coming please.

Ofsted is inspecting your school and, would like to hear your views. You can do this by completing an online pupil questionnaire at the following link: questionnaire.ofsted.gov.uk/home/pupil114592. Your views are really important to us and, will help inspectors understand your experience of school. The questionnaire will close at 11am on 13 June 2017, to give the inspector time to look at the results. The questionnaires work in Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer 11, and on mobiles and tablets when you copy and paste the link into the browser. We do not ask for your name, so you will not be identified from the responses you make.

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.
