Mrs. Dowler and Mr. Whitbread have been welcoming our pupils every morning this week to help ease the traffic congestion outside the school gate. Many parents called it a Park VIP service.

Thank you Ma'am. We will miss you.


“Today is the saddest of days for our country, the world’s greatest role model has ceased being a constant in all our lives, and it is with profound sorrow that we mourn the death of Her Majesty the Queen, Elizabeth II - Elizabeth the Great.

She was timeless, selfless, virtuous, wise and the embodiment of duty and British values. For our great nation and for many across the globe, she was also an unwavering ‘strength and stay’ in an ever-changing world. We have lost the finest monarch in our history, and we will in the days, months and years ahead remember and revere a remarkable Queen, who made an unassailable contribution to humanity, and whose life and legacy we must cherish, learn from, remember and celebrate. The second Elizabethan era has sadly ended and in her own words ‘grief is the price we pay for love’.

God Save The King”

John Forsyth, Chairman, Forfar Education

Nursery and Science Club entered Bournemouth in Bloom's Competition to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee!

We thought really carefully about what theme we wanted for our planter and the children decided that as the Queen never wears dark colours, we would have lots of bright colours in our planters!

We were then invited to meet the Mayor at the Town Hall to receive our certificate and plaque.

Well done to Nursery and Science Club!

About Us

The School was established in 1928 and is a vibrant, thriving and happy school of around 280 boys and girls. We have two classes in each year group from Reception to Year 6 with an average of 20 children in each class. Preceding that, we have an extremely popular Nursery with the large majority of our Nursery pupils moving up into our Reception classes at the age of four.

Our school enjoys a reputation for excellence but above all we are a happy school. Our nurturing environment supports children to try their hardest in all that they do, inspiring learning through innovation and exciting teaching. We instil an attitude of having a go and never giving up. Making mistakes helps us learn and makes us want to know more!

What we care about most is developing well-rounded and complete young people; children who will move on from us with confidence, ready for life’s challenges.

The site of Park School has grown significantly over the years, thanks to sustained investment. We currently occupy a number of large detached buildings and grounds with generous play areas. Facilities include the sports hall, outdoor all-weather pitch, art studio, science rooms, newly refurbished dining hall and kitchen, dedicated music rooms, an ICT suite and several libraries.
