To help our students achieve their potential, the academy places great emphasis on providing a dedicated support system covering pastoral care and assistance for specialist educational needs. We want students to feel safe, secure and supported for the benefit of their learning.

Younger students are supported by their older peers, who provide advice and guidance on academy matters using their National experience to help, especially with transition into year 7.

The academy is organised into year group tutor groups, each with a designated Head of Year and Assistant Head of Year.

Home Groups meet once a day with their personal tutor. Activities include collective worship, thought for the day, academic mentoring, peer mentoring, literacy and numeracy together with administrative tasks. All students contribute to the smooth running of the tutor group and all individuals have the opportunity to take on a responsibility to assist their personal development. This includes roles such as message monitor, notice board monitor, charity leader or reading buddy.
