Design Museum Competition

Massive congratulations to four of our Year 9 students – Anjali, Emily, Agnes and Esther – for being shortlisted for the Design Museum competition! This was open to the whole country and only 7 teams were shortlisted. Out of 15,000 students from 260 schools, our Year 9 group was shortlisted.

This is a fantastic achievement and their Technology teacher, Ms Lazenby, is very proud of them and the work they created. We will be keeping our fingers crossed for the next stage.

Health and Mental Wellbeing Project

Staff from each of our schools have completed the Health and Mental Wellbeing Project through Yoga and Meditation. They completed the training (trained by a qualified Yoga and Meditation Instructor) and delivered a supported 6 week training block to a group of selected students. They attended the training after school (8 weeks) and then delivered the Yoga sessions in their own time during Lunchtime or after school.

We are looking forward to being able to offer this as a club once we return to school. This will help students to secure clear relaxation and stress relief strategies through physical activity. Students can use these strategies to enhance wellbeing.

Who we are

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.
