Park School Music

We have a strong musical tradition at Park with teaching led by a qualified team of specialist music teachers.

As well as the pupils’ weekly class music lessons, the children may go on to join our School Orchestra or Jazz Band. There is also a flourishing Training Orchestra.

All children are encouraged to play a musical instrument. Specialist individual lessons are available in woodwind, brass, strings, piano, recorder, guitar, percussion and singing.

Children from Year 2 upwards can join one of our popular School Choirs. Our choirs perform in concerts at local venues and provide musical input at all kinds of school events. We have a specialist peripatetic singing teacher who offers coaching for those children who like to sing simply for pleasure and for those who wish to obtain their singing grades.

The Orchestra, Choir and Jazz Band perform at outside venues across the year. The children also form their own ensembles and small groups to perform to parents at School events.

Park School Sports and Dean Park

Dean Park, a beautiful 6.5 acre sports ground situated in the middle of Bournemouth, is Park School’s dedicated Sports facility. A few minutes’ drive from the main site, our pupils are transported there for Games lessons and competitive fixtures in the school’s fleet of minibuses. In the past academic year alone, over 800 children have competed at Dean Park in sports ranging from Tri Golf to Athletics and rounders, netball, football and rugby. We have also installed a series of all-weather training pitches to enable Games and fixtures to be held all year round, regardless of weather conditions.

Sports and team games are an important and integral element of our school’s curriculum. In addition to competing against other preparatory schools, we take part in many local maintained school leagues and competitions. We actively encourage the children to participate in team and individual events. Park School children achieve success at town, county and national levels.

We believe that sport for all children develops skills, self-esteem and social interaction. It also helps them learn to cope with disappointments.

Park School offers a broad and balanced programme of physical education and sport. From Reception to Year 6 all children have one PE lesson per week, during which they focus on gymnastics, dance, table tennis, core strength and balance. Children in Years 1 to 6 enjoy an additional two games sessions per week.

During the winter, boys and girls play football, tag rugby and hockey and the girls also play netball. In summer, boys and girls play cricket, rounders and athletics.

We make occasional use of the nearby high class venues at the Littledown Centre, Sir David English Centre and Kings Park Athletics stadium which provide large astro pitches, netball courts and specialist athletics facilities.
