Welcome to Queens Park Academy


A welcome from the Headteacher:

Thank you very much for visiting our Website. We hope you will find it interesting and exciting.

Queens Park Academy is a primary school located in the centre of the Queens Park area of Bedford. We admit children into our Nursery the term after their third birthday and the children may stay with us until they are 11 (Year 6) after which they transfer to secondary education for Year 7.  In the academic year 2014-2015 we have children in Years N to 4, in 2015-2016 we will have Year 5 and then in 2016-2017 we will have Year 6.  During these interim years we can only admit those relevant year groups, but from 2017 we will be an established primary school admitting all children within the primary range.

We also have a ‘community nursery’ providing day care and nursery education from children aged 0 to 5 on site - please see further details on the nursery tab.

We are particularly pleased to welcome parents and carers who might be considering us for their child. There is a huge amount of information for Parents within the tab named 'Our School'. Here you can also explore information about our Curriculum, Admissions, Inclusion, Ofsted and some general information. 

Queens Park Academy is a National Support School – this means that we have expertise to share with other schools and are always pleased to support if we can. We are committed to the training and development of teachers and teaching staff.  We are a strategic partner of the Peter Pan Teaching School Alliance. 

Please explore our website and we hope the information on these pages inspires you to contact us. Everyone is most welcome to visit the school. Please make an appointment through the school’s office  – we look forward to meeting you.

Kind regards

Mrs Anne McCormick, 
Executive Head Teacher

Independant Learning Day08Jul2015

Children and parents will attend pre-arranged appointments with each of their class teachers to discuss their child's progress at school. It is very important each child attends their appointment and completes a specific task set by their teacher. Once these has been completed then you and your child will be able to go home. Parents, however, are most welcome to arrive early for their appointments as there will be various activities going on in the halls, on both sites, for the children to take part in.
