We are a united, vibrant community which demonstrates personal excellence in all that we do. Learning at Willingdon transforms lives by igniting curiosity and expecting the very best from staff and students alike. We value opportunities, aiming for success today to prepare for challenges and opportunities tomorrow. We are respectful, honest and courteous to empower each other on our unique learning journeys. We look after ourselves and each other, and show empathy, respect and compassion to all people and our environment along the way. We encourage tolerance, resilience and reflection, which in turn allows everyone to make progress every lesson. We work together as a harmonious community to be the very best versions of ourselves.

This makes us Willingdon

Values and Ethos

At Willingdon Community School, we aim to develop, in all our students, key values which we consider contribute to the achievement of what we refer to as, Personal Excellence.



To strive to do your best on all occasions. Take on new challenges and challenge yourself to reach the highest possible standards and be personally successful.



To respect and value all members of our community, recognising and celebrating our differences. Respect ourselves, valuing what we can each bring to our community.



Understand the needs of others and support those who sometimes need our help. Contribute to charitable work which supports those less well-off in the world.



Be well mannered in all situations, displaying the basic courtesies that we all value. Greet those you work with regularly; be particularly welcoming and polite to visitors and show appreciation for those who support and work closely with you.



Always be honest, even when it may appear difficult. Be honest to yourself - know your strengths and your weaknesses.

Our GCSE Exam Results

For a third year running, we have sustained the high attainment that Willingdon Community School is renowned for.

70% of students leave with a grade 4 or above in English and Maths. This is a achievement, particularly given the recent educational changes which have led to more rigorous assessment in all subject areas.
