Parkwood Academy

Y10 Experience

In Year 10 we provide a Parkwood Experience aimed at developing confidence, self-efficiency and employability. We understand the difficulties that young people face in today’s rapidly evolving labour market and believe that early career intervention is key in building a successful future.

Our goal is to provide our young people with an experience that will help them to identify their skill set, best suited to their career destination and support them in developing a step-by-step study programme to achieve this.

It is our belief that students who have the right tools, education and self-assurance will be able to make sound and informed choices that will inevitably shape their future. This is why Year 10 will focus heavily on building the foundations for the world of work. Students can expect to be involved in work experience, career related excursions, listen to top industry speakers and receive career interviews by trained guidance workers.

Both Mr Cheatle and Mrs Montgomery are dedicated to this ethos and aim to ensure that Year 10 is a successful start to all students’ GCSE year.
