Headteacher's welcome

headWelcome to the Parkwood Academy website. We hope that our website provides you with an insight into our Academy and all that we have to offer the young people of Sheffield, including our outstanding learning facilities within our state-of-the-art building. To get a full understanding of our vision, ethos and character, we strongly encourage you to visit. To arrange your personal tour of the Academy, please contact us on 0114 231 0221.

At Parkwood Academy, we are determined that our students succeed and leave us as confident, articulate and aspirational young people, fully equipped for life and work in the 21st century. We have high expectations for our students and have created an environment in which each individual is supported and challenged to achieve their full potential, both inside and outside the classroom. Our dedicated and enthusiastic staff are committed to providing every young person at Parkwood with the very best start in life and education of the highest possible standard. At the heart of everything are our core values: knowledge, leadership, growth and diversity and these run through all aspects of Academy life and are a central part of students’ experiences at Parkwood.

As an E-ACT sponsored Academy, we place keen focus on developing social enterprise and are at the early stages of our journey to become a world class academy. In a rapidly changing world, Parkwood Academy offers a forward-thinking and dynamic learning environment where students benefit from a highly personalised and tailored curriculum underpinned by the use of innovative learning resources and a commitment to ensuring each and every student leaves Parkwood with the skills, knowledge and confidence to succeed.

We believe that the very best schools allow students to feel safe, enjoy learning and great enrichment opportunities, and ensure that all students can achieve their full potential. Parkwood Academy does just that. Ask any student and they will tell you that they love coming to school, and are excited about the future which Parkwood offers them.

Knowledge, Leadership, Growth and Diversity.
