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 lower 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 stay with us until they are 9 (Year 4) after which they transfer to their middle school. We also have a ‘community nursery’ providing day care and nursery education from children aged 0 to 5.
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 'Parents'. Here you can also explore information about our 'Outstanding' Curriculum including our focus on ‘International’ and ‘Outdoor Learning’.
We are committed to the training and development of teachers and teaching staff. The Queens Park Primary Leadership Collaborative offers excellent professional development programmes across the county. For more information click here.
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.
Mrs Anne McCormick,
Executive Head Teacher

01:00 PM - 03:30 PM @ Corn Exchange, Bedford
Pre-selected children have been chosen to represent QPA in a 'Creative Expression' competition as part of the Music and Drama Festival at the Corn Exchange. All children need to bring a pair of pyjamas or any sort of nightwear to change into and a cuddle toy too. The girls need to have their hair tied back. As there is no clear time indicated by the Corn Exchange as to when the event finishes; if parents / carers of children who are involved stay with their child and help support it would be very much appreciated.
