How we are organised

The academy is organised so that all students are given support and guidance through the pastoral and academic systems. Students are divided into tutor groups, which form part of a single Year group. The year team is led by a Year Learning Manager, who oversees the progress the year group are making. For parents the tutor is the main method of communicating with the academy. If the tutor cannot resolve an issue, the Year Learning Manager will support the tutor.

When we refer to KS3, we mean year 7, 8 and 9. KS4 is year 10 and 11, whilst KS5 is year 12 and 13.

The various departments are each led by a Subject Learning Manager who have overall responsibility for the progress of students within their department.

We have the following departments:

  • English
  • Maths
  • Science
  • PE
  • Art
  • ICT & Computing
  • Business 
  • Humanities - RE, History and Geography
  • Performing Arts  - Music and Drama 
  • Modern Foreign Languages
