It has been a pleasure to welcome the students back to the new School year. I have been impressed with the attitude and commitment of the majority of the students including those joining us in Year 7 as well as those students coming back to enrol in the Sixth Form. The uniform makes a real statement about Battersea Park School and I have an expectation that all students wear it in its entirety. If you are unsure particularly about footwear please contact the school before you make a costly mistake.
As a result of our examination performance and specialist status the Sixth Form number is 120 and we are oversubscribed.
This year 92% of our students gained 5+ A*- C grades with 98% passing at A*-G GCSE’s.
At BPS our students are very fortunate to be sponsored by Deutsche Bank to attend Outward Bound courses at Aberdovey in the North of Wales and at Lake Ullswater in the Lake District.
Every year group in our school get the opportunity to go on a 5-day trip to experience education in the outdoors!

During these trips, our students get the chance to take part in activities they would never otherwise get to do like abseiling, rock climbing, canoeing. They even get to go on an overnight expedition where they have to complete a 6 mile hike to the top of one of the mountains in the area, put up their tents and prepare their own food!
