About Heath Park
In 2016 Heath Park School completed restructuring after extensive investment, primarily funded by Wolverhampton council's £270m Building Schools for the Future programme. The school is a co-educational, non-denominational secondary with sixth form. As of the most recent inspection there were 1200 students on the school roll, of which 224 studied at sixth form. Facilities include a 250-person capacity lecture theatre, a film and media suite, and a food technology room. The school has held academy status since 2012, overseen by the Central Learning Partnership Trust. A school motto is ‘every pupils always in focus’. The nearest bus stop is Wickham Gardens on the 69 route.
Values and vision
Heath Park is a well established and highly successful, inner-city, ethnically diverse, community school. The curriculum at Park encapsulates twenty first century concepts and provides opportunities for students to develop a set of attributes, skills and attitudes that will enable them to create and thrive on challenge, develop confidence, self reliance and willingness to embrace change. The school’s aim is to develop active learners with a capacity to shape their future and the future of our community.
Heath Park is a National Support School, was a pilot National Teaching School and is now part of a Teaching School Alliance. Heath Park has delivered the full range of improvement programmes to schools in a number of different authorities in addition to playing a major role in the delivery of a two year leadership development programme in South Yorkshire.
“Strong leadership of the sixth form has led to a highly student-driven curriculum which includes the opportunity to improve in English and in mathematics. Courses are highly tailored to individual interests and the school works closely with a number of other partner sixth forms in the area to provide any course a student may be interested in studying.”
