Virtual Open Day

Virtual Open Day

Attending an Academy Open Day is usually about being able to meet the teachers who will be guiding and nurturing your child, experiencing our facilities first hand and feeling the buzz of learning going on around you.

Whilst this is not quite possible at the moment, we have put together information and media to give you a flavour of life here at Parkwood E-ACT Academy. Meet the staff, hear from our students and explore our facilities from the comfort of your own home.

Welcome from our Headteacher

Our headteacher, Gemma Cottingham, would like to welcome you to our Virtual Open Day and introduce you to the amazing benefits of attending Parkwood E-ACT Academy.

Live Open Day Experience
