The Rosedale Hewens Academy Trust is proud to introduce the work of Parkside Studio College; a specialist provider catering exclusively for 14 to 19 year olds.
The overarching strategic objective of Parkside Studio College is to provide an exceptional background in learning and training for young people who wish to succeed in the areas of Creative Media, Construction, Health and Social Care, Hospitality and Catering, Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy, together with the Sport and Leisure sectors. The educational offer at the College is quite distinct, yet complementary to other courses available in Hillingdon and West London. Although most courses offering the aforementioned areas provide either vocational or academic pathways, Parkside, with its strong links with business, is able to provide sound theoretic learning and direct work with employers. Professional qualifications can be taken at the same time as academic ones, leading directly to apprenticeships or employment.
At Parkside Studio College, we have developed a new approach to education; one which combines high quality classroom learning with practical work related activities both in and beyond the College. Students who attend Parkside not only continue to gain qualifications in traditional core subjects, but also become experts in their chosen pathway. These specialist courses are delivered through the use of industry standard, state-of-the-art equipment in newly refurbished buildings. Considerable investment has been made to ensure that young people can develop the skills, experiences and qualifications necessary to succeed in an increasingly competitive employment market.
