History[edit]

Murray Park is also a unique school because it was the first school in the UK to have skateboarding on the physical education curriculum in 2007, even though it was an after-school activity and wasn't actually part of any Physical Education syllabus but oh well it was featured on East Midlands Today. It is on the north edge of Mickleover. The group that teach the skateboarding lessons is called "Hooked"; they are based in Derby.[1][citation needed]
