Warden Park is delighted to announce that our Year 11 students have achieved fantastic GCSE results this summer. In all subjects students have received grades in the new reformed GCSE qualifications, which have more demanding subject content and more challenging examinations. Therefore this exceptional set of GCSE results is a real testimony to the dedication and hard work of our students and our staff in achieving the ‘best from all’. The proportion of students who achieved impressive grades in both English and Maths was a headline measure for schools nationally and Warden Park’s performance was well above average.

Across all subjects a significant per cent of the grades achieved by students were at the very top. At Warden Park we offer a very wide range of subjects, and in 18 of these subjects over 80% of students achieved top grades, which is a tremendous testimony to the strength of teaching across the curriculum and of students’ hard work here at Warden Park.

Dom Kenrick, Headteacher, commented: “I am delighted that our Year 11 students have achieved such an outstanding set of results and it is a fitting reward for the determination to succeed academically that they have shown throughout their time at Warden Park.”

New headteacher at Bolnore Village Primary School

Last month the Governors of Bolnore Village Primary School announced the appointment of Mrs Tracy Taylor as the new Headteacher of the school with effect from 1st September.

Tracy comes from Bramber Primary in Worthing and has been the Head there for 11 years. Prior to that she was the Deputy Head for three years at Balfour Infant (now Primary) School in Brighton and Hove. Tracy has also been a classroom teacher for 14 years, so she is bringing with her a wealth of experience as a successful teacher to the school.

Chair of Governors Chris Gage commented: “As Governors we believe that Tracy will fit well into Bolnore and is the right person to help direct the next phase of the school’s development. A passionate outdoor person herself and with a great sense of team building and the shared belief in irresistible and memorable learning, we are convinced that Tracy will continue to drive and support the many great things that are well established at the school.”
