Update from the Headteacher.

17 May 2024

Dear Parents and Carers,  

I hope you are well and looking forward to the upcoming half term. As you will remember, I am moving over to be the headteacher at E-ACT Royton and Crompton and will be moving to this role from 10th June. 

I am so proud of all that we have achieved at Parkwood and leave behind a strong team who will continue the journey we are on. I am delighted to be able to share that after a rigorous regional recruitment and selection process Mr Joel Hinchcliffe has been appointed as the new headteacher at E-ACT Parkwood, joining us from 25th May. 

It’s been my absolute privilege to lead the team here at Parkwood, and I am so grateful to the team for all their hard work. I’m also delighted to be staying with E-ACT and to continue to be part of the regional network of headteachers support our academies. Thank you all for your support and commitment to our academy and pupils. 

Yours sincerely

Gemma Cottingham
