Folkestone Academy Year Teams

Year Teams

Every student from Year 7 through to Year 11 has a Year Base run by a Head of Year supported by the Year Group team (there is also a Sixth Form Hub for Post-16 students).  This dedicated team are responsible for both the academic and pastoral welfare of each student and they will take care of them from their earliest transition experiences.

Within the Year Team there is also a Progress Leader and Tutors, who look after students, track their academic progress, attendance, behaviour and personal development. Their goal is to ensure that every child fulfils their potential and feels valued as a member of our school community.

The Year Teams develop strong relationships with parents and carers, working together in the interest of the child and are the first point of contact for parents and carers wanting to discuss any aspect of their child’s school life.

Each Year group has a dedicated space, located in the centre of the school.
