Where to find us

We are an 11-18 co-educational school (180 PAN in Years 7-11), with a growing Sixth Form, located in Whitley in Coventry.

The school has been on an improvement journey and we are delighted that our most recent Ofsted inspection (January 2024) moved the predecessor school (Whitley Academy) out of ‘Special Measures’; giving a judgement of ‘Good’ in three areas, with an overall judgement of ‘Requires Improvement’.  

‘Pupils, parents and staff all describe the significant improvements that have taken place at the school since the arrival of the new headteacher. There is now a clear and ambitious vision evident from all leaders to improve the quality of education for all pupils.’ (Ofsted January 2024) 

Meadow Park School is a ‘caring and compassionate school’ where ‘cultural diversity is celebrated’. (Ofsted January 2024) 

We are a fairly typical city comprehensive school with students from a range of socio-economic backgrounds, including those in the most socio-economically deprived areas of Coventry. We are pleased to be an inclusive school and multi-cultural community, where our students come from a range of nationalities and cultures.  

We are very proud of all students at Meadow Park School where we develop students through our unwavering focus on Nurturing Excellence, Growing Aspiration, and Thriving Together. 

The school’s last inspection highlighted many of the positive things that are taking place in the school and has given us a firm platform from which to achieve our aims.  

We are a school with a very exciting future. Every aspect of life at our school has been considered and reviewed to ensure we are doing all that we can for our brilliant students.

That being said, we don’t want to forget our past. Whitley means “white meadow” – which has inspired both the new name and logo. The logo also includes a reference to Whitley’s manufacturing heritage, and we have added the three spires that we can see from our school and are such an iconic part of our city. 

Our brand-new Business and Innovation Sixth Form Centre was opened in September 2023, providing a range of A Level, vocational and technical qualifications. We specialise in providing courses, which enable students to go on to a range of universities, apprenticeships and employment, particularly careers linked to business and the NHS.  

Our students develop into responsible young adults with high self-esteem and the skills and competences to equip them for success in the future. 

Please do come and visit our school and find out more about us. Meadow Park School strives to achieve excellent outcomes for young people, but also provides opportunities for them to be creative, innovative and to enjoy their learning.
