Assemblies and Thought for the Week

At Parkwood Academy we continue to develop all students’ social, moral, spiritual and cultural understanding through a programme of assemblies and weekly themes.  During these times, students have a focus for the week which is explored during tutor time and in assembly to compliment the theme.  Assemblies are held in year groups and involve key members of staff throughout the Academy including Senior Leaders and visitors.  Year group assemblies are also held throughout the year to deliver key points on items such as Y11 Post 16 applications and for Y9 information regarding KS4 courses they will soon be embarking on.  Assemblies are held at the end of each term to celebrate successes.
