Pastoral Development

Students at the Academy belong to one of six houses; each house is a family consisting of students from different year groups and members of staff.

Our students take great pride in their houses and a good-natured rivalry exists between them. The house system celebrates our students and their achievements and encourages them to develop as team players.

We have named our House's after the following Cathedrals:


We are very proud of the pastoral support we provide our students. Each student has a Head of Year:
