In 2012, the school moved to a brand new £35m state of the art building in Damson Way, having previously been located in an older building on Stanley Park. It won the 2012 London Design Award for new build at the Education Business Award.
The latest OFSTED inspection, from July 2013, rates the school with 'Requires Improvement' - although teaching, leadership and behaviour were rated 'Good'. The school still remains one of the best schools in London.
The school was named the "Best Secondary School" in the country in the Times Educational Supplement (TES) 2016 Awards. TES described the school as having achieved "remarkable outcomes for its student body by focusing on igniting their passion for learning." The judges were "impressed by the creative, ambitious and supportive culture fostered at Stanley Park". They noted: "At a time of huge pressure on schools, the submission from Stanley Park High made it obvious that the welfare and wellbeing of the children comes above anything else."
In this school, there is a further sub-division into 4 mini schools. Trade, Performance, World and Horizon. They are divided on the basis of the subjects they teach. Subjects vary depending upon the interests and capability of students. But its not important that a student interested in music is certain to go in Performance. The concept of mini-schools makes Stanley Park better in brightening the future of its students.
