All About Us

The Park Federation is here to serve the whole community and wants all children to enjoy and benefit from a first-class education. Our academies are safe, happy and creative places where excellent behaviour, hard work and ambitious academic standards are prized and nurtured. Every family is welcome, respected and encouraged to play an active part in their children's learning. All children have opportunities to grow in self-belief, express their individuality, and develop the confidence to take the next step in life and their next step in learning. We aim to be a springboard to success!

There are eight academies in our family: Cranford Park Academy (Hillingdon), James Elliman Academy (Slough), Lake Farm Park Academy (Hillingdon), Montem Academy (Slough), The Godolphin Junior Academy (Slough), West Drayton Academy (Hillingdon), Western House Academy (Slough) and Wood End Park Academy (Hillingdon). The Trust educates and cares for 5,000 children. There are approximately 800 colleagues on our staff team. 

Our ethos is one of high academic ambition in a well-disciplined, caring and inclusive environment. We work closely with all children - whatever their starting points and individual needs - to help them realise their full potential. Each child and family is valued and respected. We harness the energy, commitment and trust of the local community and combine it with the exceptional teaching and organizational skills of our staff team. Together we create great academies, full of pride, success and kindness.
