Welcome to the Murray Park School Website

Thank you for taking the time to look at our website. I hope that you are able to find all the information you need. You will have already noticed our vision set out on this front page – “Our vision is nothing less than realising the full potential of every single student at Murray Park.”

At Murray Park we believe that there are many factors which contribute to a successful and happy secondary school experience. We believe every child is entitled to high quality teaching and learning, with a curriculum tailored to meet their individual needs. We also aim to provide a range of interesting, memorable enrichment activities. We strive for excellence in pastoral care in order to meet students' needs beyond the formal curriculum – in other words, we are proud to look after our students well so that they feel safe and able to learn. 

Our vision is captured in our five values:

Respect – We respect all members of our community and value their differing strengths and talents. We respect everybody’s right to grow and learn with confidence.

Enjoyment – Our staff work with creativity, passion and energy to ensure that students enjoy learning and discover their talents.

Achievement – We believe everyone should strive to maximise their abilities and achieve their full potential.

Co-operation – We value cooperation both within the school community and beyond.

High Expectations – We expect everyone to attain high standards in work and conduct, so that they are fully prepared for a positive future beyond school.

What does this mean in practice? We would be pleased to welcome any parent who is considering us to come, visit and see for yourselves. Our students are our best ambassadors and you will be warmly welcomed. Please contact us to make an appointment if you would like to see us in action. Our contact information can also be used if you have any unanswered questions after reading this website.

I am proud to be sharing the pages that follow which try to capture life at Murray Park.
