At Parkside Sixth we don’t want you to be defined by just three A Level subjects, we want your next two years to open up a world of opportunities, to let your imagination define your future. We will challenge you not just to think about the person you’ll be when you are 18, but the person you’ll be at 80 and at every stage of a rich and rewarding life.
Our teachers are passionate about the engaging and vibrant International Baccalaureate qualification. There is, however, no question of compromise in academic study. The highest-ranking universities in the UK receive our students, with students scoring above 40 points in the IB Diploma. But for other students, a different score and a new, exciting home other than Cambridge or Oxford, in the UK or internationally, is an equal or even greater achievement.
We want our students to learn, reflect and grow in a sixth form which has an unambiguous mission and that delivers a values-driven education. Only the International Baccalaureate Diploma, we believe, equips students with the skills, ambition and compassion to impact ethically and significantly in a global context.
Do come and visit us and find out how the International Baccalaureate can help you imagine your future. We’re a busy, happy, unique community in the heart of Cambridge, and you’ll be made very welcome.
Director of International Sixth Form
