The Park Community School is an 11 - 16 school serving a catchment area in the town Barnstaple North Devon.

Our status as a Community School strengthens the partnership with parents and the home, extending to the wider community our total commitment to high expectations, academic excellence, achievement and success for all. A good education matters for everyone, with a broad range of provision extending well beyond the classroom.


Our central aim is to provide the highest quality of education which promotes academic excellence and achievement for each of our students within a secure and purposeful environment which young people find stimulating, respond to - and enjoy!

To achieve this, we shall work as a community:

  • to promote learning and high expectations
  • to promote personal growth
  • to provide a challenging and relevant curriculum
  • to interpret the world and plan ahead
  • to develop the school community for everyone


Education is our investment in the future. Our world demands ever higher qualifications and an extended range of skills, abilities and insights. By providing challenge, and a sensible balance of competition and co-operation, we seek to develop each individual’s character and confidence.

Our central aim is to secure achievement:

Achievement = Ability + Motivation and Determination + Self Confidence and Self Belief

Our Curriculum is:

  • Broad and balanced.
  • Matched to the needs of individuals.
  • Built upon a wide variety of teaching approaches.
  • Designed to ensure continuity within and across Key Stages from Primary School to post 16 Further Education.
  • Aimed at securing progress and realising maximum individual potential.
  • Clearly focused upon learning within a school community.
  • Extended to promote partnership between the school and its community.
  • Dedicated to working for quality


Our week is arranged into 30 lessons of 50 minutes, providing 25 hours of subject teaching plus registration and Tutor/assembly time. The timetable is actually written over two weeks - producing 'Week 1' and 'Week 2' on the School Calendar.


We have developed a wide network of links, principally with the North Devon College. The vast majority of students recognise the value of continuing their education well beyond 16 and over 90% of students regularly enrol on courses. During the Autumn Term each year Further Education staff visit the school to explain to students and parents the opportunities that are available for further study: positive counselling seeks to ensure that appropriate courses are followed by each student.
