IPPR Economics Prize Awarded to Former Parkside Student

Congratulations to Ben Szreter, former Parkside student, on being awarded the IPPR Economics Prize.

A ‘radical’ plan by three members of the same family to boost UK growth has been named as one of the first winners of the £100,000 Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) Economics Prize.

Ben Szreter said: “Our core idea is to incentivise a move to an ethical economic system – one based on mutual support where everyone has a stake in future well-being – as a solution to the economic and democratic problems we are now facing.”

Jubilee Cup District Athletics 2019

93 students from across all four schools from Year 7 to 10 competed against ten other schools at the Wilberforce Athletics track. Having gained promotion from the Olympic Cup athletics three years ago, our primary aim was to ensure we consolidated our position in the top league and look for a Top five finish. Without score updates throughout the afternoon, we felt our athletes had done enough to avoid 10th place.
Over the afternoon we secured 33 individual medals (9 golds, 12 silvers and 12 bronzes).
As the results were announced in reverse order our name was conspicuously absent until we were announced in 3rd place,  our highest ever finish, just behind the Perse in second. This is a fantastic achievement for the students and PE staff, of which we are extremely proud of.

Year 7 Trip to Cambridge Consultants

Year 7 Trip to Cambridge Consultants

A group of our lucky Year 7s were invited to visit Cambridge Consultants as part of the company’s outreach work. The students all worked hard to participate in lots of engaging activities and were fantastic ambassadors for Parkside. These activities were focused around the idea of creating a new product to help someone with the use of only one arm to be able to eat a soft boiled egg. The students did a fantastic job brainstorming some really interesting solutions to problems and identifying the problems a real user would face.

They were put into teams with students from other schools, whom they worked well with and enjoyed meeting. Our students demonstrated confidence and were able to work in teams with other students they didn’t know and were immediately discussing ideas and collaborating well.

A highlight for some of the students was writing a program for a robotic arm. One of our teams did an especially good job at writing a really efficient program. A highlight for others was the food at lunch! All the students also appeared to enjoy the opportunity to try and fool the parking cameras into thinking that they were a car taking up a space in the car park!

A couple of our students volunteered to do their group presentations at the end of the day and both did a great job. One of our team’s ‘Wolf’ project were the overall winners for the day. A congratulations to our lovely Year 7 students and a big thank you to Cambridge Consultants for supporting this great initiative.

Who we are

Parkside is an outstanding school.  Our aim is for all students to make excellent academic progress, to engage fully in school life, and to become well-rounded and caring individuals. We are relatively small communities of learners, which means that all students are known and looked after. Students and staff have close relationships based on high expectations and mutual respect.

Parkside’s GCSE results are among the very best in the region for both attainment and progress. They are also at the top in comparison with other similar schools nationally. Almost all students go on to their sixth form centre of choice.
