About Park High School
Park High School is a vibrant, successful 11-16 school situated in the heart of the town of Colne. Over the years we have become the school of choice for our community. We are consistently oversubscribed and as a founding member of the Pennine Trust, we have built strong partnerships with our local schools. We are outward facing in our teaching and learning and innovative in offering a wide range of professional opportunities for our staff.
As a result of being oversubscribed, we are embarking on the next wave of recruitment for the highest calibre of staff who can help us make sure no one is left behind.
