INTRODUCTION

Warden Park Secondary Academy has a history of strong GCSE results and in each and every year the commitment from students and staff together, leads to students achieving outstanding academic results. With the Government move towards linear qualifications and the increased emphasis on non exam assessment (NEA), we are well equipped to build on this history of success.

The Examinations Officer and her team are highly committed to each student.  This means that they will, wherever possible, accommodate individual student need, provide a strong fully trained invigilation team to support the running of examinations and will provide timely and considered responses to all students and parents with any questions or concerns about the examination process.
