It is essential to maintain close links between home and school throughout your child’s education at Mascalls so we can support our students effectively. The academy is organised into four colleges – Earhart, Luther King, Shackleton and Marie Curie (Sixth Form). Each college has approximately 350 students, led by a Head of College, Deputy Head of College, Head of Pastoral, Assistant Head of Pastoral and a team of advisors who know your child very well. Each student is in a mixed age advisory group which meets with their advisor every day. Mascalls actively encourages the competitive element of inter-college competitions through half termly challenges that include sporting, literature and art elements.
Students are also able to visit Student Services where they can request information about uniform, timetables and emergency issues.
