As principal of Tynsel Parkes CE Primary Academy I would like to offer you a warm welcome from all the staff, children and the Local Academy Council.

Tynsel Parkes CE Primary Academy is a first school catering for pupils between the ages of three and nine.  It is situated in the Market Town of Uttoxeter in Staffordshire and was built in 1968.  The academy has close links with St. Mary’s church, Uttoxeter and the local community.

Children start their journey of a full-time education here in the September after their 4th birthday.   At Tynsel Parkes we are fortunate to have a designated Nursery, which provides excellent early years provision.  Children can start their Nursery education in the term after their 3rd birthday.

 ‘Pupils at Tynsel Parkes Primary Academy love to learn. They are inquisitive and curious. They get excited when they learn new things. They enjoy making connections with what they already know. Pupils love to share their knowledge with each other and with adults. The motto ‘Loving and learning together’ is absolutely right for this school.’ OFTSED October 2019.

It is a privilege to work alongside our children, their families and the community in which Tynsel Parkes serves.  All our staff are committed, enthusiastic , skilled practitioners who ensure children are happy, work hard and achieve the highest standards possible.


Mrs. Rachel Chandler.
