Applying for a Place

Open Evening

We are holding an Open Evening on Thursday 16th June from 5:30pm.

It will take place at our Parkside Sixth building, The Eden Centre on City Road and on the main school site on Parkers Piece.

Application Process

Applications should be made through the eProspectus, MyChoice16

If you currently attend school in Cambridge or the surrounding villages, your teachers will introduce you to the online application process. If you are currently attending a school outside of Cambridgeshire, please select ‘Out of Area or Not Listed’ as your current school. 

If you have any questions, please contact our admissions team: p6-admissions@ParksideCC.org.uk 01223 271569 

Initial Guidance Discussion 

Following an application, we will invite qualified applicants to an advice and guidance meeting to discuss the courses you have applied for. You may decide that after the discussion the courses you have put on your form are not the courses for you, but we will work with you to find your best possible programme of study. For our BTECs, it is most likely your course teacher will want to meet you. You may be asked to provide examples of work you have done at school or in your free time.
