Celebration of Women’s Right to Vote

Parkside students and staff were visited by ITV Anglia News to take part in a celebration of 100 years since the first women in Britain were given the right to vote. Students were learning what attitudes towards women were like 100 years ago, and agree that attitudes have come a long way.

Sarah Drayton, Parkside Community College: “I think that quite often they (women) have legal equality – in terms of the law – but social opinions and how people actually think – it’s still prejudiced.”

Please take a look at the article and video here.

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.
