At Hall Park Academy we have five principles that guide everything we do:

At our most recent inspection, Ofsted recognised that the school continues to maintain high standards and that students respond well to teachers’ high expectations and take pride in their work and achievements.

The school has adapted the curriculum to meet local need and as a consequence students of all abilities, including those in the sixth form, achieve well.

Provision and engagement in extra-curricular activities is a real strength of the school giving students a wide range of opportunities to develop their skills and talents outside of the classroom. The pledge programme is at the heart of this and students are encouraged to commit to engage in a variety of activities that challenges them.

There is a team of talented staff at the academy who support, nurture and challenge the hardworking students who come here.
