Whole School Relocation
Following the very successful move of the Pre-Prep and Prep School to our new site at Chilton Cantelo this term, Governors have agreed that it is in the very best interests of The Park School community, parents, pupils and staff to consolidate this move and allay uncertainty and speculation.
We are therefore delighted to announce more news of exciting and positive developments for The Park School. From September 2018 the Senior School will join the Pre-Prep and Prep School and move to the Chilton Cantelo site.
This decision has been made now, so that we are able to develop the resources we require for the Senior School at Chilton during this academic year to enable us once more to be together on one site. The two site model this year is working well and has been the best way to manage the change, especially in the short time we had to prepare over the summer. The logistics of keeping two sites are tricky and not cost effective in the long term and we feel that the time is right to carry out the next phase of our development.
We will be refurbishing classrooms that are not in use this year and equipping Science Laboratories ready for occupation next September. Sixth Form students will have their own study areas and common room and they will be consulted on their ideas as we plan for the move. Our lovely grounds will be available to all students and we will be able to develop our sport, drama, art and music and further develop our extra-curricular programme for the benefit of all age groups.
The Park School you hold dear will remain unchanged, it has a very warm hearted, family culture with a real emphasis on nurturing self-belief. We are fully committed to maintaining and developing the happy, caring community, the academic standards, small classes and individual care that are the hallmark of The Park School. We are enjoying so much our Fridays, when the whole school is together for the afternoon and for our very special assemblies in the church at Chilton Cantelo. Our traditional House system will be revitalised next year as the whole school comes together again.
