Welcome to The Parks Academy

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.
