The Park Campus houses three different student groups, each with their own specific set of needs. The principal group is the Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) of 80 secondary-level students. The second is the behavioural improvement programme (BIP) consisting of 30 students who are on the campus for a short-term basis. The third is the behaviour educations support team (BEST) that serves as a drop in centre for senior students, parents and the wider community.
The Park campus was part of the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) initiative and was the first wave of London projects to be completed. Working with the exceptional head teacher Richard Leonard and the Lambeth children and young people's service the brief for the Park campus was developed from first principles.
The PRU, BIP, BEST and the community accessible sports facilities are grouped around a central courtyard. This central courtyard becomes the heart and focus of the school and contains an outdoor amphitheatre. The design also allows for extended community use of the facilities either during or after school hours.
