In years 7-11, Tuxford Academy operates a college system with vertical tutor groups. There are four colleges; Ash, Beech, Oak and Willow.

There are around 15 tutor groups within each college; each tutor group contains approximately four students from each year group (so around 20 students in total).

Older students act as buddies to new students during transition week and when they start in September, ensuring there is a friendly and familiar face to help your child find their way around, help them know where to be and when, and answer any questions they may have about life at Tuxford. In their first half term, your child’s tutor will be in touch with you, by phone or email, to let you know how they are settling in.
