All Academy schools are contacted twice a year with regard to assessments. The club clearly identifies its commitment to education. Headteachers are asked to contact the club if they have any concerns regarding the  education or personal development of each boy within the Academy.

Last season a number of schools were visited at the invitation of the Headteacher/ key member of staff to discuss issues relating to progress, achievement and well-being of the Academy boys.

Data protection means that it is not possible to ask schools to forward personal information on individual boys with regard to educational progress unless specifically requested by parents. However, the Education Officer supports individuals in all aspects of their development when requested either by parents or educational establishments.
