Governor Vacancies

The Governing Body of the Academy has two Parent Governor vacancies and are looking for a parent(s) who are interested in becoming a Governor and who have a child or children currently at the Academy (the term `parent’, in this respect, relates to any person whose name appears on the Academy’s Admission Register as the parent or guardian of a pupil attending the Academy).   If you have any queries about your eligibility as a parent/guardian, please contact the Governors’ Support Service on either 0115 8764589 or 0115 854054 for further advice.  
Please see the attached letter for more details on the current vacancies.  
Election of Parent Governor Form

Welcome to The Park Vale Academy Website

This is a really exciting time for the school. From September 2017, we have a new name, a new uniform and a new state-of-the-art building. More importantly, we are now part of the Redhill Academy Trust, a local outstanding provider, which is already providing the expertise and support necessary to deliver success to the students, many of whom will hopefully choose to transfer to the Redhill Sixth-Form Centre at the end of Year 11. Having been Head of School at Redhill Academy myself until this year, I am really looking forward to the challenge of making Park Vale an excellent school which everyone in the community can be justifiably proud of. 

The Academy’s ethos is entirely based around the principle of High Expectations. We believe that students should behave well and work hard in order to achieve their full potential. By promoting high standards right across the board, we are able to maintain a clear focus on ensuring that students leave school with the best possible set of academic qualifications. This is also driven by high quality teaching and learning from a team of professionals passionate about their subjects and committed to ensuring that students make exceptional progress. 

The school has a lot to offer beyond the classroom as well. We provide a wide range of extra-curricular activities to develop the students’ skills and interests and ensure that they become well-rounded individuals. They also benefit from our experienced and dedicated pastoral team who support the young people to ensure that they make the right choices and engage positively with life in school. Crucially, we always work closely with parents as we know how important your support can be in ensuring that we are able to maintain our high standards and deliver success for each individual student. 

We hope that you find the information you need on our website but if you have any further questions please contact the school directly.
