why choose strood academy?
We have a small school structure within our academy where pupils are placed into one of three colleges. This allows our highly skilled staff to provide excellent pastoral support, nurturing them academically, socially and spiritually in a much smaller environment.
Our colleges are each named after a ship built in Chatham Dockyard, thereby maintaining a link to the heritage of our area.
This college team is available throughout the day to ensure we fulfil our ambition of providing excellent pastoral care for all.
Each college represents just over 400 pupils and is led by a Vice Principal and two Assistant Principals. Each college is supported by an extensive team which includes a Head of Pastoral, Deputy Head of Pastoral, Senior student Support Manager, two student Support Managers, a Safeguarding Officer and College Admin.
