Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Parkside Community College. We are proud of our achievements in helping our students to thrive: they are articulate, successful in their studies, and optimistic about the future. We are always looking to improve what to do; our partnership with parents and the real attention we give to the opinions of our students helps us to remain a leading school in Cambridge and beyond.

Parkside is an outstanding school for 800 students aged 11-19, situated in the centre of Cambridge, beside Parker’s Piece. As an International Baccalaureate World School we place a great emphasis on good citizenship and ethical decision-making in all years, culminating in the Diploma programme for the sixth form.

Examination results are consistently high, but this is only part of the story. We want every student to experience learning which brings out the very best of themselves. To learn more about what makes a Parkside education special, please contact us to arrange a visit: call 01223 712600 or email: kate.craddock@parksidecc.org.uk. I look forward to meeting you.
