Welcome to Parbold Douglas C of E Academy!
I feel very privileged to be the head teacher of such a welcoming school where every child’s unique gifts and talents are acknowledged and celebrated. I hope you enjoy finding out more about our school by browsing our website.
Parbold Douglas is a wonderful village school where every child is valued and supported. We pride ourselves in developing effective learners in a positive environment where we nurture children and develop their strengths within the context of our strong Christian ethos.
We are situated on Lancaster Lane in Parbold. The school was founded in 1879 as Douglas Church of England School, next to Christ Church. The school moved to its current site in 1976 and continues to enjoy close links with Christ Church Parbold.
At our school, we recognise the essential role of key skills in English and Maths in preparing our children for their future learning and so ensure these are taught effectively and creatively – making learning exciting! Our broad curriculum enables children the opportunity to develop their skills and understanding in all areas of the curriculum and, with a wide variety of extra-curricular opportunities, we ensure children can take up a range of opportunities to learn and develop their skills in school and during the broad range of out of hours learning. We are blessed with a wonderful environment for teaching and learning, both inside and outside and are continually working hard to maximise the opportunities for learning that these offer.
I hope our website gives you a sense of what our school has to offer, but you would be very welcome to come and look round and see for yourself. Please ring the office to come and look round; I would be very proud to show you around!
