About Park

The Park is a very successful and popular school, building on our strong history and traditions.

We regard every student as an individual, with equal rights and opportunities but having differing strengths, abilities and interests. We focus on the academic progress of every student but we also seek to play a major part in helping our students mature and develop into confident, sensitive and reflective adults. We want our students to enjoy life and to be resilient, independent learners with strong self-esteem and a belief that they can achieve beyond what they think is possible.

The Park School values help to focus our work; we use these values to develop students, staff and members of our community. We strongly believe in our values and expect all members of our community to actively uphold them.

We work closely with parents; our strong house system creates a sense of belonging and family, allowing great collaboration between parents and school.

We have high standards and expectations of all members of our school; we regularly feature prominently in performance tables. Ofsted judged the school to be good with several outstanding areas. Ex-Park School students have been awarded the Petroc ‘College Student Of The Year’ on three occasions in the last four years. Former students have continued on to study at Oxbridge, Russell Group and other prestigious institutions.

Our students are our best advertisement - please take the opportunity to speak to Park School students. We welcome visits to the school; the Open evening and Open days provide a chance to see the school and feel our energy and ethos. We also welcome visits at other times when you can see the school in action. Only by seeing us in a working environment can you see how we are ‘building aspirations’ every day. We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
