Tuxford is a large academy and many of our students are from small rural communities. When they start, students join a tutor group, where they develop supportive bonds with their peers and tutor.

We place great emphasis on helping all individuals feel at home and settled as quickly as possible. Based on their tutor group, students will belong to one of four colleges – Ash, Beech, Oak and Willow. These colleges celebrate the achievements of their students and compete at events such as our annual sports day.

Each college has its own student leaders who act as positive role models. We have great pride in our student leadership team, made up of college presidents and faculty ambassadors. They help to organise inter-college events and contribute to the development of the pastoral system and ensure the student voice is fully represented. Our student leadership team also oversee the college improvement forums and organise activities within each faculty.
