All students and all members of staff belong to one of these Faculties. Each Faculty is overseen by a member of the senior leadership team.
We hold Faculty assemblies on a regular basis, so that we can review how each one is performing against behavioural, attendance and reward goals. This creates a healthy sense of belonging and friendly competition, with the most successful Faculty each week being allowed to fly its flag above the Academy for the whole of the following week.
Qualities like being a strong team player and of working towards common rather than just personal goals are extremely valuable to potential employers and so we try at Atlantic to instil these qualities wherever possible. The Faculty system provides us with a means to do this.
