How the Academy is organised
The building is divided into five wings over three floors. The majority of teaching rooms are on the first two floors with only a few specialist rooms on the third floor. Each wing points towards one of Hull’s twin cities and the wings are named after these cities: Nigata, Freetown, Raleigh, Rotterdam and Reykjavik.
There are rooms of various sizes to accommodate the different approaches to grouping students, which includes team teaching where classes are combined with more than one teacher. The teaching of particular subjects is grouped into the wings, and specialist rooms such as science laboratories and art studios are grouped together.
The academy has state-of-the-art facilities designed to support the very best teaching and learning. The sports facilities are outstanding.
The academy has a traditional uniform and students are expected to be dressed smartly in full school uniform at school and on their journey to and from school.
