Welcome to Park High School

A warm welcome to Park High School where you and your child are about to embark on the next exciting stage of their academic and personal development journey. Park High school is a vibrant and academically successful school offering an extensive and balanced curriculum and a rich and diverse programme of extra-curricular activities, all supported by an exceptional pastoral system. Here at Park we place students' needs at the very core of everything we do. We all want the absolute best for our young people who need to be empowered to shine, grow and develop into the best they can possibly be.
This page will be updated on a regular basis as we continue with our preparations to welcome our new members of the Park family.


Transition Information

As we start to prepare for the arrival of our new Year 7 students, staff are busy liaising with Primary school staff to ensure we gain a full and comprehensive overview of each and every new student. This process also involves a full day of information transfer between lead professionals and includes information share about friendship groups, academic ability, pastoral needs, character and extracurricular involvement. The pastoral team here at Park will then collate all the information and ensure that students are placed in forms with friends based on feedback from the Primary schools.

Summer School


Park High School Summer School 2019

All Year 6 students who have gained a place at Park High, are invited to attend a summer school which takes place in the summer holiday before their September start date. Our summer school programme is aimed to empower our young students' with the skills, confidence and knowledge to help the smooth transition into year 7. Summer school starts by helping students to familiarise themselves with the school building and members of staff before the September start. It also helps students to start to form new lifelong friendships as they start to meet students joining the Park Family from other primary schools. A focus on communication and organisational skills through engaging and fun activities, coupled with tips to help them settle in smoothly will all help to ensure our students can hit the ground running in September 2019 and make a fabulous start to their Park High School career.
