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.
