In order to deliver holistic education, which puts great emphasis upon personal growth and development, we follow a year group structure. Each cohort is overseen by a Head of Year, who follow the year group as they move towards the senior sections of the Academy. We believe that this is important as the Head of Year knows each child individually and can plan accurately for both their academic and personal development progress. Also, parents really appreciate the fact that they get to work with a key individual within the school management structure.
The tutor group is therefore important. The form tutor also follows the child through. They work very closely with their form and there are planned activities each day, including discussions about news, PHSEE (personal, health, social, economic education lessons), reading opportunities and monitoring progress. The assemblies cover a wide variety of topics; ranging from anti-bullying sessions to work on drugs and alcohol, and feed into our SMSC and are also complemented by a wide range of visiting speakers.
Below is a list of all the form groups for 2023/24:
