Joining Us

Parkside is an “Outstanding” secondary school, one of only a handful in Co. Durham. This means the education that we will provide for your child is second to none.

We will ensure they leave us with the very best examination results they can get – but they will achieve these results in a caring and supportive environment where teachers and support staff care for their welfare and wellbeing.

“The needs of the student remain at the heart of everything the school does”. Ofsted 2011

We provide tremendous opportunities to find your child’s talents and then invest the time and effort in nurturing and developing them, so the child that joined us at age eleven leaves us at age sixteen as a happy, confident and successful young man or woman.

We hold an annual Open Evening, but we don’t put on a special Open Day as it is possible to visit us on any normal school day and see that the outstanding quality of our lessons and the enthusiasm and exemplary behaviour of our pupils is the norm every day at Parkside.

Please telephone the school to arrange a visit.
