A strong sense of community and caring for others are values that lie at the heart of the Academy.
We believe it is important for students to develop a sense of community. Therefore, instead of a traditional “house system”, we operate a “community system” at the Academy.
The whole Academy is divided up into 4 Communites. All members of the academy, students and staff, are allocated to a Community.
There are four communities:
The Communities foster a sense of identity and belonging as well as competing with each other. Each Community has its own colour and this is reflected in the Academy badge and on ties and headscarves.
