Welcome from the Executive Principal and Headteacher
We are extremely proud and delighted to welcome you to Park Hall Academy, an 11-18 secondary academy serving the local communities of Castle Bromwich and the surrounding areas of north Solihull and eastern Birmingham.
At Park Hall Academy our aim is to help students to reach the very highest standards of excellence and to meet each individual's academic, personal and social needs. We have a relentless focus on ensuring high expectations and aspirations and provide a nurturing and happy environment so that our students mature into well-rounded people who have a passion for learning. We expect students to wear the correct school uniform, we insist on good discipline and we are proud of the excellent partnerships which exist between students, staff and parent(s)/carer(s) that facilitate their continued success.
We aim to provide exciting and challenging teaching which encourages students to learn, to want to learn and to be independent learners - young people who can think for themselves, express themselves easily and function in a wide variety of environments. In order to do this we have created a positive ethos which is focused on raising our students' self-esteem through reward and recognition on the basis that the more successful you feel, the more successful you will be. We take every opportunity to involve our students in the Academy whether it be through the Academy Council, the student leadership team and our extensive extra-curricular programme. We enable our students to achieve success by focusing on the individual and providing an outstanding curriculum for all – from entry in Year 7 right through to our sixth form, our students are supported to do their best in courses that are both matched to their aptitude and ability whilst designed to challenge them, enabling them to progress.
As a large secondary Academy, we believe that we have a central place in the local community. We have very strong links with local schools and we work closely with business and industry to enhance the opportunities we offer our students. The network of sports clubs and voluntary organisations with whom we are involved also continues to grow each year. All our partners are essential in our crusade for continuous improvement.
Park Hall is an improving Academy – we are located in one of the best designed schools of the 21st century. Our students go from success to success and with the Park Hall experience behind them they have gone on to important courses at Universities and Colleges; along with employment and training across the country. This is just the beginning! As we continue to build our strength and expertise, we expect our students’ outcomes to continue to improve.
The achievements of the staff and students make us immensely proud each day. We are thrilled to lead Park Hall Academy on its journey to outstanding and beyond - a great school, preparing young people from our local community, through a truly comprehensive education, to be highly successful citizens of the 21st century. Park Hall’s Leadership Team and all our staff look forward to working with students and parent(s)/carer(s) to achieve great things!
