Welcome to the Murray Park School Website

Message from our Headteacher


It is a great privilege to lead our fantastic school. My aim is always to give the best educational experience possible in an inspirational setting. We are fully committed to offering a top-class education which keeps abreast of national and international trends.
We are at an exciting point in the development of Murray Park: rapidly moving towards good with Ofsted; rapidly closing the gaps for Pupil Premium and SEN students; rapidly rising numbers and a fantastic 15 classroom new-build - we have much to celebrate!
In 2018, our staff, students and governors created a new strap-line for our wonderful school 'Proud to be here', which I feel encompasses how we feel about working at Murray Park as we implement our mission of: 'Supporting students in gaining a positive outlook, shaping their futures and reaching their full potential'. It also sits hand in hand with our values: Perseverance, Respect, Independence, Dreams and Excellence.
We offer an exciting, broad and balanced curriculum from Years 7 to 11, which involves equipping our students with skills and knowledge for adult life. We have opened up the chance for students to gain the EBACC, as well as offering a variety of courses such as GCSE Ancient History, Statistics, Engineering, BTEC Hair and Beauty, Construction and AS Politics to name just a few. 
Our students can take advantage of many opportunities on offer through local Derby businesses, giving them a vision for their own futures and motivating them to work hard and achieve to the best of their ability.
Please do not hesitate to make contact if you would like to find out more about our exciting work at Murray Park.
