Our Tutor Time programme looks to enhance students’ opportunities and understanding of the wider world outside our Academy. This time allows our students and staff to build strong pastoral relationships that help guide students throughout their time at Shireland, creating foundations of trust and support.  

The core of this programme is dedicated to personal development, languages, current affairs, numeracy, and literacy. The tutor time programme has been tailored specifically to each year group as seen below:
