Parkside Academy is a successful school of around 750 pupils. Whilst we stress the importance of high levels of achievement at Parkside, we also believe that pupils should enjoy their education and benefit from a wide range of opportunities in a stimulating environment. We believe we provide this for our pupils, and Ofsted agree, awarding the school its highest grading of “Outstanding”. We encourage our pupils to adopt a healthy lifestyle and to demonstrate good manners coupled with respect and courtesy to others. There is a calm and purposeful atmosphere in the school exemplifying our ethos of aspiration, hard work and achievement.
