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 2015-2016 we have our first Year 5 pupils and then in 2016-2017 we will have Year 6. During these interim years we can only admit 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 Community Nursery tab.
We would be particularly pleased to welcome parents and carers who might be considering us for their child. There is a lot of information for parents within the tab named Our School and Parents. Here you can explore specific areas dealing with our curriculum, admissions policy, inclusion and Ofsted. Why not explore our Good News page which celebrates and shares the amazing work our children and staff do. Please explore our website and we hope the information on these pages inspires you to contact us. Please make an appointment through the school’s office – we look forward to meeting you.
