    A school full of smiles


Welcome to Park School – a school full of smiles

We have built a very strong reputation for excellence in the education of young children. Our carefully differentiated teaching and individual support mean that all of our children progress fast at their own level, whether they are academic high fliers or pupils benefiting from a steadier pace. Many of our children pass the test to one of our local Grammar Schools or gain scholarships to local independent secondary schools.

As well as our commitment to inspiring excellent academic progress, we are passionate about providing a broad curriculum including a wide range of high quality opportunities in sport, music, drama, art and design. It is our job to nurture the skills, abilities and talents of each individual, wherever these may lie.

Above all, we are P.A.R.K. school. Our children understand that if they are Polite, Ambitious, Resilient and Kind, they will achieve their full potential in all areas of education and life. What more can we ask of them as they develop into well-rounded individuals with a joy for learning?

“Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might.”

Words and pictures can only give you a flavour of the Park School ethos. Please do come and visit, to meet our enthusiastic learners and staff in their happy school environment. It will be my pleasure to escort you on a tour of our lovely school.

    “A rich variety of opportunities” – Independent Schools Inspectorate reports

    “The pupils enjoy a broad balanced curriculum. This together with the extensive programme of extra-curricular activities, provides a rich variety of opportunities for the pupils’ academic and personal development.”
    “Relationships between staff and pupils and amongst the pupils themselves are warm and respectful.”
    “Pupils show very high levels of self-motivation and self-confidence.”
    “The highly constructive relationships with their teachers contribute significantly to the pupils’ excellent achievement.”
    “Pupils are very supportive of each other and get on exceptionally well with staff. Good relationships amongst pupils are clearly evident as those from all year groups play together happily.”

    An academic and caring environment

    We are delighted to announce the results of our exceptionally successful ISI Compliance Inspection. We have met all the criteria set out in the Independent Schools Standards Regulations and the Early Years Foundation Stage.

    Headteacher Melanie Dowler said “I am delighted that every standard has been met. The hard work of everyone in School has been acknowledged in this thorough inspection process and report. It is only by the whole School community working together that we can ensure all the children in our care receive the best educational opportunities. Opportunities which enable each individual to be the very best they can be.”

    Dean Park

    In 2014 we gained sole use of Dean Park, the 6.5 acre former Hampshire and Dorset county cricket ground. With this beautiful site we have increased our sports provision for children across the school. Games lessons and tournaments for hockey, netball, football and rugby now take place here on a daily basis, offering exciting and inspiring experiences for our girls and boys.

    Dean Park is also home to Dean Park Day Nursery, our successful day setting for children aged 0-5, housed in the beautifully converted Cooper Dean Pavilion.
