About Park Academy West London
Park Academy West London is a new school for a new age, an 11-19 academy, based in Hillingdon Middlesex who joined Aspirations Academies Trust, from 1st September 2017.
Park Academy West London has a close working relationship with the Aspiration Academies Trust’s other academies in London. These are Rivers Academy West London, which was judged ‘outstanding’ in its recent Ofsted report, Space Studio West London, which specialises in space, aerospace, science and maths, Tech City College and, in the primary sector, Oriel Academy and Oak Hill Academy.
The Trust also operates the Aspirations Teaching School Alliance which provides high quality training and support for teachers. At Park Academy West London we aim to inspire young people to be adaptable, tolerant and prepared to work hard. We want them to take their place in the community and the wider world to be proud of their achievements and with the necessary skills, confidence and self reliance be successful learners.
We are passionate about excellence in education, giving students the very best start in life with a firm belief that excellent teaching transforms lives. As an Aspirations Academy, we aim to aid students to dream about the future and do something in their present in order to reach those dreams. Our core belief is that for all students to have high aspirations they must believe in themselves, be actively engaged in their learning and see the connection between what they learn today and who they want to become tomorrow.
The Academy is ideally situated ten miles from the centre of London and forty miles from Oxford in the London Borough of Hillingdon, with good transport links to the M4, M40 and M25. The impressive £26 million building opened in September 2005, offering state of the art facilities providing an excellent learning environment for the 21st Century.
Our impressive range of facilities includes: a suite of Science laboratories; Food Technology rooms and a garden; advanced Design and Technology workshops with industry-standard equipment; Art and Design suite with graphic design technology; the UK’s First LEGO Education Centre; a video editing suite; large drama studio; excellent music suite with advanced electronic music recording studio; individual practice rooms; a restaurant and fitness suite.
