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, 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.

The Student Voice has been supported by our Learning Mentor, Mrs Schoberth which was set up 2012.
The students have contributed in a number of different ways. For example, working with Helen Sharp (Commissioner for Young People in Lambeth) making a valuable contribution to the Young People living in Lambeth. Helen Sharp feels that young people living in Lambeth should have the opportunity to contribute and provide feedback on what kind of service would be beneficial for those living in the community.
The “Student Voice” ensures that the students are heard and represented in the decision making of Park Campus Academy. Members of the “Student Voice” collect feedback from all students to make sure everyone’s voice is heard.
The "Student Voice" has evolved through the combination and collaboration between the PSHE department and the Leaning Mentor.
We found that the traditional school council format does not prove to be an efficient and consistent platform for our students, as we are an alternative provision academy.
The “Student Voice” reaches far into the community, whereby students are able to give back to the community and take responsibility, sharing their individual skills and talents. It also provides students with the opportunity to gain new skills and grow into responsible and caring young adults.
