Sutton Community Academy is part of the Academy Transformation Trust family of academies.
We believe every child matters and deserves a first class education. Our team knows first-hand how to make education better for schools, pupils and their teachers.
For us, the future of UK education relies upon schools working closely together to share best practices, giving every child the best chance in life. We set up ATT to make this vision a reality.
As a not for profit trust, we work with our growing family of primary and secondary academies and further education provider in the Midlands, East of England and South East.
Our mission is to provide the very best education for all pupils and the highest level of support for our staff to ensure every child leaves our academies with everything they need to reach their full potential.
There is a huge emphasis on independent learning in the Sixth Form. You will be expected to organise your own time and actively support your studies by completing additional work outside of the classroom. You may be expected to research a topic and to present it to a small group of Post 16 students, a skill that is vital in work and university life. The role of a Post 16 teacher is for guidance and support throughout these transitional, independent years.
Post-16 Pastoral Care & Performance Monitoring
All Post-16 students will have a personal tutor. The tutor will register their form and mentor each student for a one-to-one session of around 20 minutes on a regular basis during a review period. The meeting will focus on reviewing data. From the meetings, targets will be set for the future. Any issues raised will be dealt with to ensure the student maintains good progress. We have a very clear system in the Sixth Form of monitoring and checking every student to ensure that all students reach their full potential.
