The academy is organised into 3 colleges – Kingsley, Angelou and Turing. Each college is situated on its own floor and provides pastoral care to 60 pupils from each year group, led by the Head of College and Student Services team. Students are placed in mixed ability form groups and have dedicated form time each day where they follow our pastoral curriculum. All students, regardless of college, access the same academic and pastoral curriculum across the academy but go to their college areas for their form time and to access Student Services.

They are named after pioneers who aspired to achieve great things, irrespective of barriers, linked to the subject disciplines in their college.
