“It is a privilege to be a part of Parkside Federation and watch the schools grow and flourish.”

Our Vision – Excellence, Innovation and Collaboration

Our mission is to establish a partnership of community schools as local life-long learning centres of excellence. We want our schools to

  • Promote an enjoyment of learning, the highest possible achievement in all its forms, and a sense of success for all learners
  • Develop confident and responsible young people
  • Value and celebrate diversity, and work to eliminate discrimination, promote equality and foster good relations
  • Be a source of pride and a resource for the local community

We believe that ‘human scale’ learning environments foster the positive relationships that enable teachers to know their students well and make possible a more holistic approach to learning that engages the whole person. For many young people a human scale learning environment can also make the difference between success and failure. We aim to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better, more peaceful and environmentally sustainable world through intercultural understanding and respect.

I look forward to welcoming you to our schools.
