Pastoral System

Our pastoral care system aims to promote our core values of Respect, Courage, Ambition and Hope. We are committed to a positive approach and, whenever possible, use praise and rewards to motivate and encourage our students. At Hope Academy, we pride ourselves on the fact that our students are supported in all areas of their education. All students are recognised as individuals who are seen and heard within our community. Effective pastoral care underpins life at our school: from their first day with us, students are highly aware of the support systems that they can draw upon, from their Heads of Year and Pastoral Managers, to their Inspire tutors, to the more bespoke supports offered within our Learning Hub and Chaplaincy provisions.

To ensure outstanding support and care is embedded across the Academy, we have introduced a House System, alongside our year groups structure, which further creates a sense of family and belonging. Each of our students are allocated to a House (Taizé, Iona, Corrymeela and Othona) which allows students across all year groups to work together and get to know each other in a supportive and collaborative way.
