The Head of Department (HOD) will provide professional leadership and management of their curriculum area(s) in order to secure excellent standards of teaching, learning and achievement.

Developing constructive working relationships and providing the best possible care lies at the heart of the Academy's ethos. Heads of Department are expected to engage the full support of their staff in this venture, overseeing the work of the tutors in the department to maximise student growth and performance. The role of Heads of Department in the Academy is crucially important and comes with a high degree of autonomy and accountability in terms of curriculum design, planning and implementation.

Assistant Principals will form part of the extended Academy leadership team and will undertake a whole Academy responsibility. This will be by negotiation and agreement with the Principal.
