Welcome to The Parks Academy

Welcome to The Parks Academy.

Over the past two years we have been working tirelessly in order to make this school the pride of Orchard Park and the pride of Hull.  The Parks is now an exciting and safe place to learn.

Our aim is simple - we all do our bit to ensure pupils achieve the very best that they can.

We are a proud, achieving academy. Pupils love to learn and adults feel privileged to work here. Please browse our website to find out what we're all about!


Our ethos

Our Academy’s ethos is based on the traditional values of hard work, kindness, friendship, respect and honesty. Our ethos is firmly rooted in traditional British values. Learners feel safe in a caring and nurturing environment. We strive to enhance the lives of learners throughout the local, national and international community, equipping them with the skills and knowledge to fully engage and make positive contributions to society. Children are at the heart of everything we do.

Mr D. Irving

Head of Academy


I am Fiona Arnott, Chair of the Parks Academy E.A.B. It is the job of the E.A.B. to challenge and support the senior leadership team to ensure the highest possible standards for the Academy. The aim is to create a positive learning environment in which every child can achieve their full potential and have the best start in life.
