Design Museum Competition – 2nd Place!

Massive congratulations are due for our Parkside girls who came second in the Design Ventura Museum competition on Friday 11th June. Their product – The Shoe Button, a gadget that helps people learn how to tie their shoelaces! – is fantastic and something they should all be very proud of. What a brilliant achievement!

Parkside Literary Tour of Cambridge

On Monday 19th April, our Year 13 English students went on a literary tour of Cambridge learning about the many ways in which our city has influenced the great world of literature…

From ‘A Room of One’s Own’ by Virginia Woolf to ‘Taking Leave of Cambridge’ by Xu Zhimo, we explored how Cambridge’s literary heritage has impacted society and culture across the globe. The Year 13 Higher Level Literature students worked together to compose a collection of texts from Cambridge to accompany the tour.
