Year Group Contacts

At Felixstowe Academy we want to make sure that students feel safe, are happy and attend regularly in order to succeed. Therefore, we have a team of dedicated staff who have the students at the centre of their role.

Each year group also has a Head of Year, who is there as the first point of contact for parents/carers who ‘triage’ any problems that your child might be experiencing. Head of Years are not teachers and are therefore available at most points in the school day.

As this is a new experience, full of challenge and opportunity, students sometimes feel a little overwhelmed and therefore the Head of Year is there to help and direct your child to the most appropriate support.

Raising Standards Leaders, are accountable for ensuring that each individual student achieves their optimum level across all subjects and will therefore be taking a keen interest in the support offered to individuals to help them succeed, as well as ensuring that the student feels happy and safe within the Academy.
