School Description

Overstone Park School was founded in 1983 by the current proprietors. It is a day school for pupils between the ages of two and 18 years, although almost all pupils leave at the age of 16. There is one student in the sixth form. It is owned by joint proprietors, one of whom is the head of the school and undertakes the day-to-day leadership and organisation. The school aims to ‘realise the gifts and talents of all pupils. They are encouraged to be caring and helpful members of the community showing good manners and respect towards others’. The school is set in a five acre site in a rural location to the east of Northampton. Its facilities include a multi-purpose hall, specialist teaching areas for computing, art and science and an area for animal husbandry. There are 41 children in the early years setting, 29 of whom attend on a part-time basis. Twenty-six of these receive government funding for three and four-year-olds. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is higher with that found nationally; a significant proportion of these pupils move to the school for their secondary education. Pupils come from a variety of ethnic and cultural backgrounds that reflect those of the local area. None speaks English as an additional language. The school does not make use of any alternative provider. The school was last inspected in November 2010, when its quality of education was judged to be good.
