Our Year Teams

Each day we strive to achieve our NLA school vision:

All children and young adults make exceptional progress whatever their background, academically, socially and emotionally through world class learning opportunities. Our resilient students will be responsible, active citizens, who can compete and thrive regionally, nationally and globally.

Our Year Teams are the engine rooms of the academy, enabling our vision to become a reality. The Year Leaders in each year group (Yr7-11), together with their team of form tutors, are committed to ensuring every student has the highest of standards. They support and challenge everyone in the year group to follow the NLA ‘I will…’ statement and display our core values, Aspire – Experience – Community – Achieve on a minute by minute basis in school and beyond.

Our Year Leaders have a wealth of experience in supporting students to achieve their best academically, socially and emotionally.
