Park High School


Park High School is a high achieving, mixed, harmoniously multi-ethnic 11–18 school in Stanmore, which converted to Academy status in August 2011. It is an extremely popular school and has a national reputation for academic excellence, outstanding pastoral care and for providing a positive environment in which young people thrive. Parents know that if their children come here they will be joining a strong, caring, respectful community with an emphasis on high achievement for all, alongside dedicated support
and encouragement at all times.

At Park High, every individual is highly valued. Our supportive approach enables everyone to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding required to be responsible, considerate and well-rounded individuals suited to the demands of our ever-changing multicultural society. Our commitment to careers education was recognised nationally in 2018 when we were awarded the Quality in Careers Standard in Investors in Careers.
At Park High, we all work in partnership to ensure the very best outcomes for each of our students. Our aims are simple: we want to achieve excellence so that each and every student reaches their academic potential. First class teaching is crucial to our students’ achieving great outcomes and, here, at Park High, our dedicated teams of specialist staff are enthusiastic, talented and strongly committed to providing the very best. Ofsted (2009 and 2013) judged the school outstanding in all areas. Staff development is widely
regarded as “leading edge” and we have recently achieved the Teacher Development Trust Silver Award for Continuing Professional Development. We have strong partnerships with universities and other higher education institutions and we actively support our staff in pursuing Master’s Degrees and other higher qualifications. This is a great place to learn and work, whether you are a student, a technician, an administrator or a teacher.

We place a very high emphasis on respect and positive behaviour, which ensures that the school is a happy and safe place to learn. Students involve themselves fully in everything the school has to offer. They attend well and are keen to learn. Young people enjoy coming to Park High and we enjoy teaching them. This is an outstanding school, a great school and there is still work to be done. We are not perfect and so we strive to improve. There is no room for complacency here.

We look forward to meeting you, introducing you to some of our students and showing you our school. You will be pleased that you chose to visit.
