A welcome from our Headteacher

Park is a successful and popular school, building on our strong history and traditions. The school’s core values and traditional House System help to shape life and opportunities at Park School. These elements accentuate the sense of belonging, family and shared experiences – creating memories, characters, attitudes and ambitions which remain with many students far beyond their time at Park.

February 2019 brought a new chapter for Park joining the Tarka Learning Partnership (TLP). We have subsequently forged even stronger working relationships with our main primary feeder schools and Trust colleagues. This student journey focused perspective is helping to develop more seamless teaching and learning which will ensure primary students are more ready and equipped for life and learning at Park as they enter Year 7. As our school continually improves, we have embedded a new curriculum and school day.

Our curriculum is based on research around how we learn and will support our students to become independent learners who strive for success at every level. Regular recaps of key terms, vocabulary and knowledge will help Park students develop their working and long term memory to become better learners, developing resilience and adapting to the changing world in which we live.

Like much of the rest of the world, the 20/21 academic year at Park was substantially impacted by Covid-19. Our departing Year 11 students were a wonderful cohort with many strengths and talents. They grew and matured into fine young people during their five years at Park School. The year group added a great deal of value to our school and whilst their last year at Park was disrupted, they leave us with many fond memories. We are proud of their achievements; their academic progress and, just as important, other crucial attributes, skills, characteristics and core values developed during their time with us.

If you are interested in following in the footsteps of many previous generations and joining us for an exciting journey where you will develop academically and personally, please view our Open Evening information.

Stephen Waldron, Headteacher
