Alexandra Park School is a Specialist Science and Maths School in Haringey, North London, UK.

The school provides a comprehensive education for students aged 11-18. Since opening in 1999, the school has continued to grow and develop gaining specialist schools status in 2005. Its headteacher is Michael McKenzie.

The school was opened to year 7 on 9/9/99 at 9am. For the first year, the school co-existed with the closing College of North East London (CONEL) and students occupied just one floor of the old block (built in the 1960s). Fact|date=February 2007 The extension in 2006 won a commendation at the Civic Trust Awards.

The expansion of Alexandra Park School has added a number of key elements: a main teaching block for art and design technology, with general teaching spaces and a sixth form suite overlooking a courtyard; a science centre with four laboratories; and a performance arts department, with a drama studio and music practice rooms. The scheme was designed and built to a fast timetable, and incorporated an unusual number of "green" technologies within the tight budget.

The school draws its students from a wide geographical area that includes the relatively prosperous wards in the borough as well as some of the most deprived regions in the country: over 40% of the total intake comes from the latter area. The student population reflects the rich diverse cultural heritages of the borough. The percentage of students speaking a language other than English is well above average as is the proportion entitled to a free school meal and the proportion of students who have a learning difficulty or disability. The school is involved in the National College for School Leadership, provides extended service and holds the following awards: Investors in People, Sports mark and Healthy Schools.


Although the school is named after Alexandra Park, it is located c. convert|500|yd away from it, at the edge of Muswell Hill Golf Course. With a main entrance on Rhodes Avenue and another entrance on Durnsford Park, within north london.


Alexandra Park School is now part of the ICT Register, a unique database which captures ICT and eLearning expertise in cutting edge schools and learning centres across the world. It is, however, not listed on the London schools page of the ICT Register. [cite web | title = Schools in the ICT-Register (L) | work = ICT Register | publisher =Specialist Schools and Academies Trust | url = | accessdate =2008-01-16 ] It hopes this will contribute to driving up standards of teaching and learning in ICT and encourage students to become independent learners.

On October , the school launched the revolutionary iLearning concept for ICT across the curriculum. The 5 i philosophy embraces national initiatives and local-school terminology in order to allow students to become independent learners through the use of ICT throughout the curriculum.

OFSTED inspections

Following the school’s first OfSTED inspection in November 2002 the school was judged “A very good school which enables all its pupils to do well. Standards are much higher than might be expected of pupils with similar backgrounds and prior attainment. This is due to good teaching, excellent leadership and management, high expectations of work and behaviour and a real commitment to ensuring that every single pupil benefits from what is provided and is encouraged to give their best.” We have appointed an outstanding, highly qualified staff who bring vision, energy, enthusiasm and very high expectations to the school. OfSTED commented that “the quality of teaching is a significant strength of the school”.

In the school's second OfSTED inspection in May 2007 the school was judged "A good school with some outstanding features. Although the school is relatively new, its standing in the community and beyond is well established because of the outstanding leadership of the Headteacher." The report highlights the outstanding features with OfSTED commenting "Care, guidance and support are good and the pastoral provision is outstanding, which contributes effectively to pupils' personal development. Vulnerable students and those with learning difficulties and disabilities are mostly exceptionally well supported. "
