The Academy is divided into 5 Houses, each led by a Director. The five houses contain tutor groups, whereby students are allocated to a tutor group within a specific subject area. The tutor and coordinator of the subject have the curricular and pastoral responsibility for their tutees. Student Support Services' role is to oversee provision in key areas e.g. attendance and punctuality and student support across the other hubs. Learning Hubs have responsibility for the Academic Achievement and Welfare of each student assigned to the house. Each house student wears a tie with a stripe in their house colour.
Year groups are divided into tutor groups and are assigned a Tutor who will meet with the tutor group each day and monitor student progress and behaviour closely, liaising with parents as appropriate. Each Tutor is lead by a Director who has overall responsibility of the academic and pastoral welfare of all students in their hub.
Healthy competition between hubs will encourage teamwork and a sense of pride in achieving excellence in Sport, Enterprise, Academic Achievement, Attendance and contribution to the success of the Academy.
Each house is named after a local individual who has achieved or inspired through their actions across different domains including literature, sport, music and social mobility.
