Our Student Services Team are here for everything our students need throughout their time at the Academy. They help to provide a range of support services ranging from Safeguarding to booking the late-bus after clubs to get home.

They work closely with our tutors, who will stay with your child throughout their journey with us and be your link between home and the Academy.

Compass is a bright, welcoming and supportive environment where students are referred for support if staff feel it is necessary, or where students can drop in for advice and support. It allows a comfortable and relaxing work environment, with access to confidential space if needed. Compass is staffed all day to support our students’ needs.



We offer a wide range of internal support packages to address some of the issues our students are trying to cope with. In addition our support team facilitate access with external agencies for support including the School Nurse and a range of programmes run through the Locality Early Help Team and other supportive agencies.
