The Parks Primary Academy is located in the heart of Orchard Park, Hull, and is proudly rated by Ofsted as ‘Outstanding’ (November 2023). We believe The Parks is an academy where kindness, ambition, and academic excellence flourish, and have an excellent team of staff offering fantastic support, both in an academic and pastoral sense.

We are a 1.5 form entry school, catering for pupils from the Early Years Foundation Stage, through to Key Stage 1 and 2, with around 350 pupils on roll.

Between 2021 and 2023 the school site underwent large renovation works, including a welcoming entrance area, extensions to the buildings, a large front playground, and full refurbishments throughout the academy. The building and facilities are now modern, spacious and promote a positive approach to learning.

The Parks Academy is a great place to learn and work. We believe that when staff, parents and children work together all children, irrespective of their background, can succeed and achieve their ambitions. It is our mission to offer every child a high-quality education in a supportive, safe and challenging environment in which they feel valued and are inspired to become life-long learners who are ‘striving to be the best’.

If our values match yours, we would love to hear from you. We also welcome visits to the academy, please contact us on 01482 761321 to arrange your visit.

We are very lucky that we are situated in Hull along with three other Delta academies: Craven Primary Academy, Mersey Primary Academy and Estcourt Primary. This allows us to work closely together and each academy is committed to learning from each other and sharing best practise.
