Headteacher's Welcome

Headteacher's Welcome


I am very proud to be the Headteacher at Parkside School and would like to extend our warmest welcome to all visitors.  

Parkside School is a busy 11-18 school in the village of Cullingworth, just a short distance from Bradford. We welcome all children from our local community, whatever their ability or background.  We look to serve our local stakeholders and aspire that our students can have a positive impact on our community. 

We are here to ensure that every student achieves as much as possible during their time at our school, eventually leaving us as the best version of themselves they can possibly be. We want our students to enjoy their education so that they value learning, both in and out of the classroom, and can look back fondly on their time at Parkside School. Our vision is to develop ‘world class’ students who are as well prepared as possible for the next stage in their life; articulate, ambitious young people with the strength of character, the confidence and the qualifications to compete in a highly competitive world

In September 2023 we became proud members of Wellspring Academy Trust and we work together with the same person centred values to bring about a strong, happy and successful school community. 

As well as aspiring to achieve academic excellence, we place a strong emphasis on the importance of good manners, oracy, excellent behaviour, hard work and most importantly, kindness. 

We hope that our website gives you an insight into Parkside School, and we look forward to meeting you and your child at some point in the future.

With very best wishes,

Steve Tighe                                                                                                                                                                            Headteacher
