About Park House School

Park House School is a dynamic school. In October 2019, the school was judged to be Good and we have the aspiration – and a clear plan – to move to Outstanding in the coming years.
Employing the right staff is vital to our success and is a key priority for us. Actively involved in
every interview process, I believe that valuing and developing our staff is the best way to release their potential. In return, I seek staff who are passionate about working with young people, resilient, and with a truly growth mindset. If this is you, we look forward to hearing from you!

We are a values-driven school, committed to high quality teaching and learning and respectful relationships within an inclusive learning community. Developing stimulating and student-centred teaching and learning is at the centre of our school development work. We work hard to ensure that our students develop confidence, leadership skills and high levels of aspiration.

Park House School is an 11-18 comprehensive school with academy status with approximately
1250 students on roll. Examination results are consistently good at KS4 and KS5, regularly
exceeding national averages across the board and ensuring that all of our students are able to progress to future education, training or employment. The school is genuinely comprehensive and our catchment area includes students from areas of relative deprivation as well as affluent socio-economic backgrounds. We are delighted to welcome increasing numbers of students from different cultures and we celebrate the diversity this brings to our school community. We run a large and successful sixth form which allows students to follow A levels, a level 2 vocational pathway or take advantage of a blended offer as part of our football and rugby academies.
