About Marshalls Park Academy

Our vision is to ensure that all of our students are enabled to achieve to the very best of their ability and beyond. We will achieve this by ensuring that every lesson counts; through good and outstanding teaching and focusing on the individual needs of each and every student. In many respects, our philosophy is straightforward; we want all of our students to receive an excellent education to help them to prepare for their future lives. It is an exciting time at the school as we expand to 1200 students over the next five years, and the associated site developments that will allow, that will help this very popular school move into its next phase. More importantly, we believe passionately that to achieve lasting school improvement, the critical element is the investment a school places in its staff, and that starts from recruiting the best teachers and ambitious leaders to instil that climate of change in the school.
