Headteacher's Welcome to PCA Website

On behalf of the children, parents/carers, staff and Governors, I would like to welcome you to the Park Community Academy website.

Park Community Academy is a vibrant, thriving, happy and successful school which aims to provide high quality educational provision for all of our children in a safe and secure environment which reflects care, happiness, enjoyment and success.

Park Community Academy is a member of the Sea View Trust along with 3 other Blackpool Primary Schools and a Lancashire Special School, and converted to Academy status in September 2013.  It is a Special Academy currently catering for boys and girls aged from 2 to 19 years.  

The children who attend PCA have a wide range of learning needs including moderate to severe learning difficulties, complex learning difficulties associated with Autistic Spectrum Conditions and speech and language difficulties, sensory impairment, some complex medical needs and varying degrees of social emotional and behavioural needs associated with their SEND.

All of the children have an Education, Health and Care Plan.

The original school was opened in 1960 and is set in pleasant surroundings close to Stanley Park in Blackpool.  Blackpool Children's Services are the admissions authority.

Please take time to view our website to find out more detailed information of the wide ranging educational, personal and social learning experiences on offer here at PCA.

Please do not hesitate to contact us directly (admin@park.blackpool.sch.uk) should you require further information.
