Our approach to the curriculum: Regardless of prior circumstance or future destination we firmly believe that all pupils at Park Campus Academy should be successful and we do everything possible to deliver this vision. As established members of the Partners in Excellence PiXL club we are relentless in ensuring that all of our learners achieve the best possible grades.

As part of the excellent academic opportunities available to all young people, Park Campus Academy offers an exciting and engaging curriculum at Key Stage 3, enabling students to develop their literacy and numeracy skills and giving them the confidence to be re integrated into our partner schools. Students at Key Stage 3 study a wide range of subjects including, English, Maths, Science, Art, Food Technology. Design and Technology, Computer Science and PSHE. Students also take part in project based learning throughout the school year.

At Key Stage 4 we have a broad and flexible academic and vocational curriculum. Learners have the opportunity to achieve a significant number of GCSEs and vocational qualifications. All our young people move on to employment, education or training, with a significant number leaving to study A-levels at mainstream sixth form colleges.
