The school has undergone a period of rapid improvement with the examination results in the last three years confirming our “OUTSTANDING” Ofsted status. In 2013 Parkside was the top school in England for Value Added and in 2014 nearly 70% of pupils achieved at least 5A* – C grades including English and Maths.
In Mathematics, 65% of Pupils met the governments expected levels of progress and 82% met them in English. All of these figures exceed local and national averages.
We ask all of our students to aim high and we set very demanding targets. As a result almost a quarter of all examination entries were awarded Grade A/A*.
This outstanding success has arisen from our insistence that every pupil is valued for their contribution to the school and community, coupled with skilled and dedicated teaching and support staff and a desire to challenge and motivate our pupils to be the best they can be.
