Funmi AdewaleMessage from the faculty director: Ms Adewale. "Communications Faculty students wear a royal blue tie and we have two tutor strands in our Faculty: CK and CB tutor groups. Both tutor groups are named in recognition of aspirational individuals who led social change: CK is in memory of Dr Martin Luther King Jr who was a beacon for racial equality, CB is in memory of Louis Braille who revolutionised the lives of blind and partially sighted people with invention of the Braille system. 

The Communication Faculty motto is ‘Learners Today, Leaders Tomorrow’, and this captures the essence of our Academy vision of ‘All Can Achieve’ as well as our five core values. We aspire to this because learning is not just about facts but the training of the mind to think, to adapt, to cope and to take risks that will establish your success in and outside the classroom, in the present and in the future."

Maths and Commerce Faculty students are guided by this motto both in the classroom, in sporting competitions and when they are in the wider community. We also aspire for our students to have high levels of attendance and punctuality and gaining lots of positive points for doing the right things."

Our belief is that through our Science and PE team, we can work together to support one another in achieving gold, whatever that might mean to each individual within the faculty. As a faculty we strive to uphold the Academy's core values, and in particular we work within our community to raise money for our faculty charity, 'Mind'."
