“Igniting a passion for learning” is our motto and guiding principle.
We will establish an achievement culture in which every single student is encouraged to succeed. We aim to develop each student’s talent and release their individual, unique potential. We will be an inclusive school and strive to meet the needs of all students.
STEAM is our curriculum approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. At Merstham Park we teach through a specialist and thematic project-led curriculum (ITPs). This enables us to explore concepts, skills and knowledge in its broadest sense - examples of the topics studied can be found on the school website.
