Message from our Headteacher

It is a great privilege to lead our fantastic school. In the short time I have been here, I have been made extremely welcome by our wonderful students, parents and staff.

My aim is always to give the best educational experience possible in an inspirational setting. Our teachers are fully committed to offering a top-class education that keeps abreast of national and international trends. 

We are at an exciting point in the development of Murray Park: Good with Ofsted; some of the best progress data in Derby; rapidly rising numbers and a 15 classroom new-build on the horizon - we have much to celebrate!

We offer an exciting broad and balanced curriculum, which involves opening up EBACC to more of our students, as well as offering Statistics, Engineering and Design, Hair and Beauty and Construction to name just a few. Our students can also take advantage of the many opportunities on offer through our local Derby businesses. 

Please do not hesitate to make contact if you would like to find out more about of our exciting plans for Murray Park.

Expansion Project

Below is an artist’s impression of the new building that will contain Reception, 15 classrooms, and a number of offices which is being built at the front of the school.

You may have already noticed some works have been started, these works are ‘enabling works’ such as re-routing of mains services and the demolition of the old caretaker’s bungalow.

The contractors will start work on the new building at the end of June, with completion being August 2019, and ready for use September 2019 (Academic year 2019-2020).

During this period of time, access into school will be restricted with routes for cars and pedestrians being altered.  For students’ safety and consideration for nearby residents, can parents/carers please refrain from driving onto Earlswood Drive and onto school site.
