Parkside Sixth is a vibrant sixth form, with a strong careers programme as well as an excellent range of extra-curricular activities available. Enrichment is a fundamental element of the IB Diploma Programme, with all students completing CAS as part of the core curriculum. Examples of clubs run this year include Debate Club, Gamemakers, Yarn & Crochet, Creative Writing, Basketball, and more. 

We are able to take advantage of our links to the universities, with visits to learn more about univeristy life and applications, as well as by having a diverse range of speakers come in to talk with our students. Recent speakers and topics include:

  • Davide Marino discussed his research into the history of Weimar Castle
  • Marabel Reismeier asked us to reflect on Is science neutral? At what stage do values come into science?
  • Ellen Purdy on the science of art conservation
