The Academy operates a House system, which means we have four smaller family groups within the Academy. The house bases, permanently staffed by our dedicated student welfare and family liaison officers, provide support for the social, emotional and behavioural aspects of Academy life, and monitor the academic progress and attendance, of the students.
We ensure that siblings are placed in the same House as each other to provide the natural family support within the Academy. Our Student Support Base provides further support for students and their families when required.
Students are assigned a tutor with whom they have daily contact for academic and personal support.
dditionally, students have the opportunity to voice their views through the House and Academy Councils. Students are elected to represent their peers in half termly meetings during Student Voice weeks.
