Welcome to Drake House where we aspire to achieve our potential in every aspect of our school life.

Our students are very proud to be in Drake House, they are DETERMINED to do their very best in everything they try, to be the best!  But to be the best building our RESILIENCE is paramount, if at first we fall over, we pick ourselves up and try again.  Drake students are AMBITIOUS to experience new things, to achieve new goals and gain good GCSE’s when they finish.  Above all the students, tutors and everyone associated with Drake House is KIND, and recognise when someone needs help, kindness costs nothing.  And finally, but not least, we always ENCOURAGE one another to overcome our fears, to take on new challenges and achieve your potential at Park School.

Maintaining links with our local community is very important to all in Drake House, through unforgettable events including The Great Drake Bake Off, students have raised money for local charities including ‘The Little Bridge House’ and ‘The Air Ambulance’.
