Why Lydiard Park Academy?

Children only have one chance at education so it’s important to choose a secondary school that can provide the opportunities that your child needs. It starts with making sure children enjoy school, are kept safe and are settled but, ultimately, it comes down to the quality of each and every educational experience we provide.

The question we always use at LPA to guide decisions is a simple one – ‘Would I be happy with this as a parent if this were my child?’. Clearly if our answer is ‘No’, then it needs changing, and by applying this approach to every aspect of our school over an extended period we have managed to create a consistent level of quality that now makes us one of the top schools in the South West of England.

As an academy serving a comprehensive intake, we know that every child that comes to us has a unique mix of strengths and needs. That’s why we strive to make every part of the school as good as it can possibly be. So, whether your child needs a high level of academic challenge, the opportunity to shine in the arts, the chance to be a leader on the sports field or any other walk of school life, our simple aim is to provide the platform that enables them to turn their potential into performance.

We are already a very good school and are well on the way to becoming a great school. If you share our ambitions for your child, we hope to have the opportunity to help your child build their future and make the very most of their potential.
