About Us

Parkside is a rapidly improving school situated in a rural situation, close to Haworth, West Yorkshire, with good transport links to both Bradford and Leeds. It is a popular and oversubscribed 11 to 18 co-educational school with 1100 students on role. In September 2013, we welcomed our new Headteacher who is both excited and committed to developing Parkside School and making it the good school that both the students and community deserve.

In November 2014, OFSTED commented:

“The Headteacher, newly appointed senior leaders and many middle managers have high expectations. They have made large-scale changes since the previous inspection that are improving teaching and raising achievement….”

”Behaviour around the school is calm and orderly. Students enjoy coming to school and are welcoming to visitors”

“The school’s arrangements to keep students’ safe are good. Students say how well they are supported and cared for and how little bullying takes place”
