Andrew Hutchinson OBE

Andrew Hutchinson has been Executive Principal of Parkside Federation Academies since August 2005.

Andrew started his teaching career in Liverpool before working for a number of years as Head of Classics and Head of Year in schools in London. He then moved to Doncaster as Deputy Head before taking up his first Headship at Parkside Community College in 1999.

Parkside Community College was one of the first schools to establish a Federation when it took over the nearby failing Community College in 2005. Since then, the Federation has grown to include Parkside Sixth which opened in 2011. Parkside Federation Academies will also be opening a third new secondary school in 2015. Parkside Federation Academies is an International Baccalaureate World School and is focused on developing a new international curriculum for all its learners.

Andrew was awarded the OBE for Services to Education in 2008.
