Welcome to Park School Teaching Service. We provide pupil-centred education which is specifically adapted to meet the needs of every individual child.

Park School provides full time education for key stage 3 and 4 pupils enabling them to obtain external qualifications and supporting them with their transition into a post 16 provision. The curriculum covers both academic subjects and enrichment. The timetable is extremely flexible allowing children to access as little or as much as their health will allow. Quality First teaching, small group sizes (max 10), learning mentor support and qualified, experienced staff all work together with parents, children and external professionals to ensure the correct package is in place for every child. This is reviewed and amended on a weekly basis.

Pupils can access our main pathway or our Wellbeing group.

The main pathway provides pupils with access to a selection of GCSE’s including English, Maths and Science in addition to a broad pastoral, and wellbeing curriculum.

The aim of The Wellbeing group is to enable the most vulnerable pupils to access learning at their own individual pace. Experienced staff assess learning, social and emotional needs and deliver whatever help is necessary to remove the barriers to learning.

In addition to our onsite provision students admitted to Royal Bolton Hospital are taught by our staff either at the bedside or in our small classroom situated on the Children’s ward. Our staff plan engaging activities based on a thematic curriculum and contact schools for information on individual student’s targets. Here, there is also a strong focus on SMSC.

The very high staff to pupil ratio, the strong focus on nurture and the early identification of children’s needs by qualified, experienced staff all enable Park School Teaching Service to provide every child with the opportunity to fulfil their learning aspirations, achieving GCSEs and other accreditation, whilst raising self-belief and developing life skills to fully prepare them for the future.
