Strong academic success is achieved by combining class teaching with lessons that give a practical exposure to curriculum subjects.
Visits, workshops, trips or days out are organised from Pre-School 1 upwards. These back up the classroom teaching and encourage a passion for learning.
Technology is key to Warlingham Park School’s learning and the facilities at the school allow faster access to interactive teaching materials, which assist with making the classroom a stimulating and relevant environment in which to learn.
Our design technology programme continues to be of an extremely high standard. Children are taught mathematical and scientific concepts which are normally not approached before secondary school. Even our youngest children readily absorb complex concepts and are able to begin to turn their ideas into practical workable pieces of design from a very early age.
Warlingham Park School stands on the same green, open space that originally housed St Leonard’s School Church of England Middle School from 1952 – 1984. This school was originally founded in 1834 when the curate of Chelsham, Richard Crampton Fell, set up a parish school to serve the local farming community. This part of the school is still in existence today and is used as the Reception classroom in the Infant Section of the School.
The setting with the surrounding woodland has allowed the pupils from Year 2 upwards to enjoy the school’s Forest School.
We are really excited to be extending our Early Years provision to open 51 weeks a year for 2 to 4 year olds from September 2020, alongside a total renovation of our Early Years classrooms..
