A Well Resourced School

Cleeve_Park_257

Cleeve Park School occupies a two storey building set in extensive grounds. While the original building dates back to the 1930’s, it has been continually developed and expanded since that time. The school continues to evolve as it strives to offer the best possible learning environment for its students.

       

The school has 6 fully air conditioned well equipped ICT suites which are used for ICT lessons and the computing elements of all other subjects. Apple mac computers are used extensively in the art and music departments and we have a dedicated iMac suite for our media students.

All classrooms are equipped with interactive whiteboards which are used to support teaching and learning across the curriculum. The latest versions of software packages are widely used. The school has a high speed internet connection. There is an additional IT suite based in the  Design and technology faculty which is extending its use of IT functionality.

 

The school has a purpose built drama studio, specialist music rooms and spacious art and design studios. A well equipped gym and sports hall, along with the extensive grounds and playing fields enable a wide variety of sporting activities to take place. Our specialist status in design & technology, mathematics and science has led to improved facilities in these areas and summer 2015 has seen four of our science laboratories completely refurbished.

The well stocked library has a range of reading and research material and a number of computers to aid students independent learning. Students are exposed to a wide range of technologies to enhance their research skills and use kindles and i-pads to increase the opportunities for reading the latest book releases.

 

The school canteen was recently refurbished and the school catering is outsourced to Pabulum to provide healthy and delicious meals for our students. The canteen is very popular and is open throughout the day for sixth form and staff.  As part of the refurbishment, cashless catering was introduced which means that parents can top up and monitor students accounts online so that students don’t need to bring money every day and queuing times are reduced at morning and lunch breaks.

Our Sixth Form are based in the heart of the school and now have access to a large and air-conditioned computer study suite with a dedicated sixth form advisor available five days a week. Sixth form students also have exclusive use of the dedicated Sixth Form Café which serves hot and cold meals alongside freshly made coffee and cakes.
