What the school offers its staff

The most important thing you need to know is that Warden Park Secondary Academy is a fantastic school to work in! The academy is very well respected in the local community, has a long tradition for excellence and our students’ outcomes are very strong. Our students are excellent - generally above average ability on intake they have an excellent work ethic, standards of behaviour are very high and they are enthusiastic in their support of the academy evidenced, for example, by the very high numbers who engage in extra-curricular activities. You will therefore not be surprised to hear that the academy is significantly oversubscribed for the 300 places on offer in Year 7 each year. Places in our excellent Special Support Centre (SSC) which caters for 24 students with Education Health and Care Plans are equally sought after.

Warden Park Secondary Academy and Chichester Free School, along with two local primary schools, Warden Park Primary Academy and Northlands Wood Primary, make up the Sussex Learning Trust. The four Headteachers work closely and opportunities for partnership work across the curriculum are evolving as the Trust develops.

There is excellent pastoral care in the school coordinated by a very experienced team of colleagues who oversee our five Communities - Africa, Americas, Asia, Europe and Oceania - and who contribute to ensuring that, even in a large academy such as ours, every student is known and well-cared for.
