Parkside School is a wonderful environment where children’s curiosity is awakened. Their journey is one of discovery; where talents and passions are nurtured and developed and our pupils are encouraged to take responsibility for their learning. They develop the courage to rise to each challenge, persevere when the going gets tough and face their fears with confidence. We catch them when they fall and guide them back on their individual journey.
Inspired teaching, passionate and dedicated staff and beautiful grounds totalling 45 acres, with excellent facilities, ensure we can deliver a dynamic and innovative curriculum that lights that spark. Academic excellence and outstanding sporting achievements are underpinned by exceptional pastoral care. Parkside pupils flourish and are valued as individuals; happy and confident as they move to their Senior School.
Our pupils see their future in terms of unlimited options rather than curtailed ambitions. Don’t just take my word for it, come and visit us to see how your child would benefit from becoming a member of the Parkside community, or arrange a personal virtual tour.

Today we pride ourselves on the fact that this traditional yet so important set of values is still very much part of the school’s ethos. Although celebrating all that is traditional, the school continues to adapt its curriculum to modern times. “Built on Tradition – Embracing the Future” represents our belief in developing the core values in our pupils that will prepare them for their journey ahead in life.
Whilst being very proud of our history, Parkside’s aim has always been to be aspirational for its pupils by offering them a challenging, innovative, exciting and creative curriculum.
Parkside is now a thriving preparatory school for boys aged from 4 to 13, with an on-site co-educational nursery. Set in beautiful grounds on the outskirts of Cobham, the school provides a stimulating environment in which boys can learn, grow and develop. We allow the boys to make the most of their abilities, interests and talents by showing them the joy of learning supported by a dedicated teaching team. Although strong examination results are, of course, important to us we also want pupils to leave Parkside as happy, self-confident, grounded and independent boys. If we have achieved this, then we have succeeded.
