Welcome to Regents Park Community College
As the Headteacher of this exceptional school, I am extremely proud of our ethos which is based on Respect, Pride, Creativity and Challenge. Staff and students embrace our values and as a result we are, arguably the most improved school on the South Coast.
Regents Park is an over- subscribed mixed 11-16 school in the heart of Shirley, Southampton, currently placed in the top three schools in Hampshire and Southampton for the outstanding academic progress that we achieve.
The school is one of the oldest in Southampton steeped in history and over 100 years old. At Regents Park we provide a wonderful mix of tradition with a modern twist on teaching and learning ensuring that we provide a curriculum that generates interest, challenge and most importantly offers fun and excitement.
Ofsted April 2018: ‘Teaching is characterised by highly effective planning, secure subject knowledge among the teachers, the use of a wide range of teaching strategies and the use of detailed information about pupils.’
Our pastoral care is second to none and we pride ourselves in the support and respect that emanates around the school with Student Leadership and Student Voice forming the platform on which the school continues to excel.
Ofsted April 2018: ‘The strong messages about respect which flow from the top, and are modelled by all staff, are assimilated by pupils. Accordingly, they treat each other and adults with respect. Pupils’ behaviour around the school is exceptional. Their enthusiasm for learning is admirable, and their conduct in lessons is excellent.’
Our success is built on the commitment we have towards each and every student. As a small community school we understand the needs of each individual and data is used effectively to inspire each child to do their best.
Ofsted April 2018: ‘As a result, pupils make remarkable progress during their time in school. For example, the most recent set of published results for the school shows that the Progress 8 score was well above average; results in English are in the top 10% of all schools nationally.’
Regents Park is a truly remarkable place to work and learn where our absolute unwavering commitment to each individual is evident in all that we do. For more information on our school please refer to the most recent Ofsted report, our website or call us to make an appointment to come and visit.
