Your child will join a College when he/she enters the Academy and will remain within that College throughout his/her school career. All aspects of support for his/her academic progress and pastoral care will take place within the College.

Your child’s named College does not imply that they have a particular aptitude or interest. Your child will have access to the same curriculum provision, choices and Academy facilities irrespective of his/her College.

Tutor groups are comprised of approximately 20 students all from the same year group. This system allows each Tutor to really get to know their tutees.

There are three Colleges: Orion, Pictor and Vela. Colleges are supported by College Leaders, Learning Mentors, a team of Tutors and College administrative support.
