Parkside Literary Tour of Cambridge

On Monday 19th April, our Year 13 English students went on a literary tour of Cambridge learning about the many ways in which our city has influenced the great world of literature…

From ‘A Room of One’s Own’ by Virginia Woolf to ‘Taking Leave of Cambridge’ by Xu Zhimo, we explored how Cambridge’s literary heritage has impacted society and culture across the globe. The Year 13 Higher Level Literature students worked together to compose a collection of texts from Cambridge to accompany the tour.

UCAS Deadline

With UCAS applications made, these are exciting and nervous times for Parkside Sixth Students. We pride ourselves on our highly impressive destination data at Parkside Sixth with all of last year’s students achieving their Post 18 ambitions, whether University, Apprenticeship or Gap Year.

Only days after the UCAS Deadline, 80% of our students have received at least one offer from their chosen universities. One of our students Lara has in fact already accepted an offer – fast work indeed!

Welcoming Back Our Sixth Formers

Welcome back one and all.

The start of a new term always brings great excitement and this year is no exception. Whilst we all face the myriad challenges Covid brings, we do so together, if anything the situation is helping to develop a real esprit de corps. Friendships are being formed, heads are buried in books or laptops, and the energy in our Sixth Form centre is palpable.

Phantom of the Opera – Maya-Maria

From the moment I started reading “Phantom of the Opera” by Gaston Leroux, I felt as if I was watching a live performance, every page lured me to read more and more about the beauty of this book.

What inspired me to create a cake based on this story was the way in which identity was represented through the mask. The phantom is portrayed as wearing half of a regular mask, which helps to better understand his character: half of him is like a ghost, unknown and unseen by the others, while the other half of him is still human as he has emotions that he gives in to. Masks are known to hide people’s faces, but I never thought the structure of a mask can give so much meaning

The Book Thief – Abigail

My biscuits are based on The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. They have some of my favourite quotes and important images from the book.
