Message from our Headteacher

It is a great privilege to lead our fantastic school. My aim is always to give the best educational experience possible in an inspirational setting. We are fully committed to offering a top-class education which keeps abreast of national and international trends.

We are at an exciting point in the development of Murray Park: rapidly moving towards good with Ofsted; rapidly closing the gaps for Pupil Premium and SEN students; rapidly rising numbers and a 15 classroom new-build on the horizon- we have much to celebrate!

Our staff, students and governors have created a new strap-line for our wonderful school 'proud to be here', which I feel encompasses how we feel about working at Murray Park as we implement our mission of: 'supporting students in gaining a positive outlook, shaping their futures and reaching their full potential'. It also sits hand in hand with our new values: Perseverance, Respect, Independence, Dreams and Excellence.

We offer an exciting broad and balanced curriculum, which involves opening up EBACC to more of our students, as well as offering Ancient History, AS Government and Politics, Statistics, Engineering, Hair and Beauty and Construction to name just a few. Our students can take advantage of 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 our exciting work at 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.
