Pastoral Care

All students belong to a tutor group and the tutor is the main point of day-to-day contact for the student and home. We have a strong pastoral support system for our students through their tutors and student managers.

We hope that students will remain with the same tutor throughout their time at the Academy. Heads of Year are responsible for the progress and care of the year as a whole. Each year group has a non-teaching student manager who is available during the day to discuss concerns, either in person or by phone. Staff also carry out home visits, especially for those families who find it hard to get to the Academy during the day or the evening.

We welcome all faiths at the Academy but we have a specific link with the Vicar of Tidworth, Annabel Copeland who is also our school Chaplain. She can be found in the Ark on the first floor. We also have a school counsellor and nurse who can give support and advice.
