The pastoral curriculum at Sybil Andrews Academy aims to support and complement the academic curricula, taking a holistic approach to education. Our intention through the school curricula is to build the cultural capital and rich experiences of our young people so that we prepare our students as well-rounded members of the community and modern day British and global citizens. As a school, our is for our young people to leave school as confident individuals, successful learners, problem solvers and responsible citizens.

In supporting our school aims, students are given the opportunity to engage with a range of themes and issues through a carefully balanced and topical curriculum.
A range of activities are undertaken across the timetable designed to celebrate success, build community spirit and enhance learning. Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural aspects of learning are taught across a range of subject areas and allow students to develop critical thinking skills.

A sense of community is a fundamental aspect of our pastoral curriculum. We have a team of student leaders whose role it is to be the voice of the students and all our young people are encouraged to play an active role in their assemblies. Student leadership is supported by the student community leaders and our trained ‘peer mentors’ who work to support students with academy life and wellbeing.
