Each student is placed in a form group in Year 7 and remains in this for the duration of their time at Hodgson. This is just one way in which firm friendships are fostered. A progress tutor oversees each form, to support the academic and personal development of every student.
All students also belong to one of the academy’s four house teams – Phoenix, Dragon, Pegasus and Griffin. The house system, which is an integral part of every student’s life here, helps to create team spirit, competition, responsibility and leadership skills..
Hodgson’s Heads’ of House and pastoral care team provide an extra layer of support alongside our teaching staff. There is an excellent standard of holistic care for those students that need this, which can be linked to other key external support agencies.
Our House Pastoral Support Officers work alongside our Heads’ of House to ensure that the students in their House receive the care, support, advice and guidance that they need.
