Welcome to Totara Park School

Totara Park School is proud of the way it provides a caring and nurturing environment for its pupils. Here the pupil is placed at the very centre of the school’s being. The meeting of the individual needs of each of our pupils and the strengths of our teaching team are the key ingredients in the success of our school.


The School is very well equipped with excellent teaching staff, modern resources and a very supportive community. We pride ourselves on our school’s ability to provide the essentials for our pupils and the skills they will require for successful lifelong learning.


At Totara Park School, we have high expectations of pupil achievement. This encourages all pupils to reach their full potential. Our teachers employ the latest teaching strategies and techniques to give their pupils the skills they require for life long learning. This caring and safe learning environment, provided by the Board of Trustees and the extra support and funding provided by the Home & School, contributes to the modern, warm and inviting school climate.
