The School

Parkside Community College is part of the Cambridge cluster within United Learning and is committed to bringing out ‘The Best in Everyone’ through an education that develops rich knowledge and character.

Parkside Community College is a highly oversubscribed school with a long history of success and an excellent reputation for innovation in education. We are situated in three sets of buildings, with the main site, overlooking Parker’s Piece, opening in 1913. We offer 120 places in each year group and believe deeply in the power of ‘human scale’ education, where every student is very well known and strong relationships help teachers to support their classes to exceptional outcomes. Our last inspection graded us Outstanding and our GCSE results in 2022 make us one of the highest performing schools in the country, within the top 1% of schools for progress.

Our intake is diverse: we have a large proportion of higher attainers on entry; we also have significant profile of Special Educational Needs. We have many students join us from overseas, with a range of ability in English, both in the main school and in the 6th Form.

We are committed to supporting our colleagues to be highly effective teachers: as well as department curriculum time, we develop our teaching as a whole staff every week, informed by Rosenshine’s Principles. We have a behaviour policy that is consistent and enables colleagues to teach without disruption.

United Learning

We are part of United Learning, a large, and growing, group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England.

Our schools work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. Our subject specialists, our Group-wide intranet, our own curriculum and our online learning portal all help us share knowledge and resource, helping to simplify work processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance.

As a Group, we can reward our staff better: with good career opportunities, better pay, benefits, and ultimately, the satisfaction of helping children to succeed. We invest in our staff wellbeing. Our academies each have at least eight INSET days per year (with three of those solely dedicated to planning), and an ongoing group-wide wellbeing programme. It's an ethos we call ‘the best in everyone’.

We are working hard to become a more diverse organisation – which is key to our commitment to bringing out the best in everyone. We welcome applications from everyone committed to this ethos and would particularly welcome applications from black and minority ethnic candidates, who are currently under-represented in the Group as a whole. We always appoint on merit. We are open to discussing flexible working options.

We reserve the right to invite strong candidates to interview in advance of the closing date, so encourage early applicants.

Commitment to safeguarding

Our organisation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. We expect all staff, volunteers and trustees to share this commitment.

Our recruitment process follows the keeping children safe in education guidance.
