Malcolm Arnold Academy

At Malcolm Arnold Academy we seek to broaden the horizons of each and every one of our students, helping them to achieve at the highest level both academically and in their talents outside the classroom.

Tutor Time

Tutor Times: 

MAA tutors champion their tutor groups. 

Our tutors demonstrate our high expectations and encourage all students to meet the MAA Way. 

An MAA tutor supports their students with maintain good attendance, ensuring uniform and equipment meets our standards, supports learners with behaviour and celebrates their learners achievements. 

We want to ensure that every child and every member of staff develop a sense of belonging and our tutor groups are one way in which we embed kindness and consistency. Our tutor groups are supported by our Pastoral Leaders within the school. 


Each week students have an assembly to reflect, to inform, to engage a curiosity of learning. Our assemblies are held in year groups to ensure that we are specific with our information and presenting appropriately.  Students often receive information on events in society, assemblies aligning with our Christian Ethos and we have external speakers visit. Our aim is to ensure we extend this learning opportunity to guide and nurture our student ensuring they are informed and prepared for their next steps after their time at the Academy. 

House system: 

At Malcolm Arnold we have 4 Creeds that represent our houses. Our house system is built by our student leadership team and continues to evolve with the input of our student body. A creed is a set of beliefs which guides someone’s actions. At the core of MAA, we expect our community to uphold, wisdom, resilience, determination, and diligence. 

 Throughout the calendar year students have the opportunity to participate in a number of Inter House events through our enrichment offer.
