Parkwood Academy

Y7 Experience

In Year 7 we aim to provide a unique Parkwood experience which promotes confidence, team building and self-esteem. We understand the importance of a smooth transition from Primary to Secondary School, and aim to ensure that each child is supported at this crucial stage. The Year 7 Team is committed to giving each student a positive experience, which will support their continued development as they progress through the Academy.

We believe that every student should have a wide range of experiences outside of the classroom that will support the progress being made in lessons. This year we achieved this not only with Year 7 residential but also with the various other experiences that have been put on throughout the year; these include reward trips, media experiences, self-esteem workshops, theatre trips and numerous fundraising events held throughout the year. This year we hope to continue with these successful experiences whilst also adding new endeavours tailored to the student as both the individual and collective. For all students to gain a full Parkwood experience we expect all pupils to attend at least one extra-curricular session each week.
