Community and Friends of Warden Park
Want to donate to or sponsor us?
We are grateful for any donations you may wish to make towards academy development. Our funding from the Government does not always provide for investment in new initiatives.
If you would like to discuss upcoming initiatives and pledge a contribution towards them, either by making a donation (please email firstname.lastname@example.org) or discuss a business sponsorship package, (please email email@example.com ) and we will contact you to discuss further.
Warden Park Secondary Academy will work hard to keep you informed and up-to-date about the benefits your gift has made to the community, as well as other methods of donating as they arise.
If you would like to make a more general donation to school life, please see the Friends section below.
FRIENDS OF WARDEN PARK
UNASHAMEDLY A FUNDRAISING BODY - ESTABLISHED AND RUN BY THE PARENTS OF STUDENTS OF WARDEN PARK
Due to the generosity of parents, former pupils and friends like you, Friends of Warden Park has been able to provide numerous additional facilities for the Academy over many years. We need your support to continue this good work. There are lots of ways in which you can help, either with your time or through our various financial options.
All Friends (parents, governors and teachers) are welcome to attend FOWP committee meetings. These are usually held at 7.30pm on the second Wednesday of each month during the school year. Just follow the signs from Warden Park main reception.
Our fundraising activities include:
- Find a Fiver: Donate a regular amount each year (normally people give between £5 and £50 per year). You can do this via Find a Fiver on ParentPay. You can increase your donation at no further cost to you by using Gift Aid.
- The 300 CLUB - our monthly cash prize draw. For only £20 a year (under 39p a week), you can help Friends of Warden Park raise vital funds for the school and have a chance to win one of three cash prizes every month! Go to ParentPay or see the application form for details.

Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in helping, giving your name, address, telephone and student contact details (name and tutor group), and we will contact you.
- Attend our varied and entertaining fund raising and social events. Why not organise a group of your friends to support the school? Ideas for new events would be welcomed.
