At Parkwood E-ACT Academy, we offer extra-curricular opportunities and activities outside the main curriculum.
The opportunity to learn skills and participate in activities that develop young people are important and contribute enormously to our students’ social and academic development.
In addition to timetabled sports, cadets and creative activities, we have a number of leadership activities that the students can become involved with. For example Anti Bullying Ambassadors. Students across all year groups can apply to join the student leadership team.
Students across all year groups can involve themselves in the Food Bank project, collecting food donations which are delivered to Burngreave Foodbank. This charity was chosen by our students.
Regular sports clubs, including football, basketball, cricket and netball take place throughout the week, both during and after school. Further activities designed to enhance students’ classroom learning include STEM club.
We believe that all of our students should experience success in as many aspects of academy life as possible. Extra-curricular opportunities present another avenue to success.
We also offer students the opportunity to complete a bronze level Duke of Edinburgh award and to be part of the ‘Brilliant Club’ (in partnership with University of Sheffield) in Year 9.
Our enrichment is always developing so please contact us if you think there is something that your child would like to do and we will try our best to include it in the next term’s programme.
