The unique WDPS Life Skills Challenge program has been created because all children need a key skills-set in order to develop their potential and to make their life dreams become a reality.
All visitors help us to become enquirers and to learn and discover new things about the world.
Visiting 10 Downing Street helps us appreciate that the WDPS Core Values are reflected in fundamental ‘British Values.’
WDPS Cycle offsite multi-day challenges help us all to develop resilience and to become effective team players.
We develop higher-level thinking skills online by learning to analyse, synthesise and evaluate.
Our teachers appreciate that we are all unique individuals with different learning styles.
Learning is fun as our Teachers plan exciting learning experiences through the International Primary Curriculum (IPC).
The all–weather WDPS Mountain Bike and Running Trail helps us develop fitness, stamina and essential bike-handling skills.
We learn from different world cultures which helps shape us into well-balanced and open-minded global citizens.
In the WDPS Bushcraft Area we develop our Multiple Intelligences and self-confidence whilst learning to manage risks.

Mr Gaines

I joined the staff at West Denton in 2012 teaching in year 1.
I have now been teaching for five years, before I became a teacher I worked in construction for over 20 years.
I have run a variety of after school clubs, including developing the Key Stage 1 outdoor area and Multi-Skills.
I enjoy teaching practical lessons in science and numeracy; I am also responsible for Religious Education across the school.
My interests outside of school include walking the family dog, spending time with my family, music and DIY.
