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.

Poetry by Heart Competition Winners

Congratulations to Lara (Y12) and Poppy (Y7) for winning the KS5 and KS3 school rounds of the Poetry by Heart competition! Lara’s rendition of Duffy’s poem ‘The Last Post’ was powerfully haunting. Poppy’s recitation of The Jabberwocky showed great spirit and captured the poem’s sense of surrealism.

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.
