Heads of House are responsible for pastoral care at the academy and for having an overview of their students’ education including their attainment, welfare and behaviour. Students are grouped into four Houses with a Head of House and Deputy Head of House for each, and elected student House Captains. The House system is used to motivate students to achieve, through a range of House-related activities and competitions, from reading to sport. The academy operates vertical tutor groups. This means that tutor groups include a mix of ages. In schools that use this system tutors have much more contact with individual students and there are fewer instances of bullying as students create friendships across and between year groups.
