The Junior College is staffed by qualified primary age range trained teachers. Children will also be supported by teaching assistants and a learning mentor.
In addition each child will be part of one of the six Main Academy pastoral Colleges – Maths, Humanities, Technology, Arts, Science and Communications – to help prepare them for their transition to the Main Academy in Year 7. The College system allows children to be supported by older students; to have their views heard through the College Council; take part in competitions between Colleges in sport, music and other activities; and to join with older students for special events. All interaction with the Main Academy will be on a supervised basis.
