Parkwood Academy

Y8 Experience

In Year 8 we aim to provide a unique Parkwood experience which promotes confidence, team building and self-esteem. The Year 8 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. Year 8 pupils take part in a wide variety of experiences throughout the year; these include reward trips, business enterprises, musical experiences, 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.
