Welland Park School
Welland Park Academy, or Welland Park School as it is better known is a middle school in Market Harborough, Leicestershire for students aged 11 to 14. The school holds specialist Technology College status.
The school was originally known as Welland Park High School. There is another nearby secondary school, the Kibworth High School, that feeds into the Robert Smyth School (upper school). In 2009 the school finished 3rd in the Times Spelling Bee final at Leicester Square, London. The school recently became an academy.
Whilst it caters for pupils aged 11 to 14, it also works with different community groups providing facilities. Subjects offered for Key Stage 3 (KS3) include the core SATs subjects of English, Maths and Science; Modern Foreign Languages (French and German); Design subjects including Art, Textiles and Food Technology; Humanities including Geography, History and Religious Studies.
It is located on Welland Park Road and like the road, is named after the River Welland by which it was built. It has an Octagonal Hall that is used for many theatrical productions in the town.
Welland Park Community College converted to Academy status in August 2011 but has not yet chosen to incorporate 'Academy' into the name.
