About Boorley Park

Boorley Park Primary School opened in September 2019. We have two forms of entry and the school was built to fill the basic need for more school places as existing schools in the area are at capacity or oversubscribed. Our purpose built school provides a safe and nurturing environment for children and sits at the heart of the community in the new housing development at Boorley Green. We are part of the Wildern Academy Trust which includes Wildern School, a further 7-form entry secondary school is planned to open September 2021. This is an exciting time for the trust and all colleagues present and future.
