Parkside Federation Academies
Parkside Federation Academies is a Multi-Academy Trust with a Local, National and International reputation for educational excellence. We pride ourselves on an innovative approach to teaching and learning and a commitment to high standards for all.
|Address:||Parkside Community College, Parkside, Cambridge|
|Membership type:||Charity 100+ (£1,000+VAT pa)|
All our schools are situated in the south of Cambridge and their close geographical proximity enables our highly collaborative approach.
Parkside Federation was established in 2005 when Parkside Community College joined Coleridge Community College to form one of the first Federations in the country. The Federation converted to a Multi-Academy Trust in 2011, at the same time opening a new sixth form Parkside Sixth. In the last three years, we have also managed the construction of an innovative new secondary school, Trumpington Community College.
In 2016 we became a DfE approved academy sponsor, and are now keen to welcome new members to our partnership of schools.
