Part of The Shared Learning Trust, a family of schools in Bedfordshire About The Stockwood Park Academy


I am delighted to introduce you to The Stockwood Park Academy. We are very proud of our learning environment and the high standards of progress made by our students. The Stockwood Park Academy sets challenging targets to stretch students to achieve more that they might feel is possible.

Our website is designed give you some important information about the academy and to reflect our ethos and expectations. However, it cannot replace the vibrancy of day-to-day life at and we strongly recommend that you take time to see us in actions. Visitors are always welcome.

While firmly rooted in traditional values, we have made our academy a vibrant, exciting place with a positive ‘can do’ attitude. We have an innovative curriculum, which makes the transition from primary to secondary education an enriching and enjoyable experience and enables students to follow a personalised route to success. Embedded in this is a focus on spiritual, moral, social and cultural aspects which enable students to reflect on their learning and wider issues around them.  Many students become involved with community projects.

We have a clear focus on achievement in all year groups. Students arriving in Year 7 will become familiar with their target grades and we will monitor their progress to ensure these targets are at least reached, if not surpassed. In KS4, appropriate support is available for all students to ensure the highest levels of attainment. Staff are skilled in ensuring achievement is maximised. We work in partnership with parents and carers to encourage children to achieve the best they can. Together, we are achieving more than we ever thought possible.

Having achieved good GCSE results, many students choose to remain with the academy and enrol in The Shared Learning Trust’s Sixth Form. We offer a broad range of A Level and Level 3 courses enabling students to progress to higher education. In the past 3 years, over 90% of sixth form leavers have secured university places.

Staff at the academy deliver high quality lessons, ensuring that clear learning takes place. Lessons are varied and interesting and make use of the latest resources.  The academy is well equipped with new technologies, which facilitate excellent learning opportunities.

There are many out-of-hours opportunities for further learning.  Staff provide many after school sessions and clubs to enable students to improve their skills.  The academy is also open at weekends and in the school holidays for older students studying for exams.  Many students make use of this invaluable resource.

All of our students are expected to work hard and behave in an exemplary fashion. This achieved through clear expectations and a comprehensive rewards system that encourage students to do well and ensures they feel safe and able to meet the challenges set.

The Stockwood Park Academy makes a difference to young people talk to any of our students and they will say the same!
