Academy Structure

The Academy is organised into six houses; Blue, Green, Orange, Purple, Red and Yellow. Each house is led by an Assistant Principal who is responsible for the academic performance of each student. Pastoral care is provided by our six Pastoral Directors of Learning. Every student belongs to a house, which is identifiable through the coloured stripe on their tie. Each house has at least one tutor group in each year group, with those tutor groups being based in particular departments.
