"The support offered to the students with special educational needs, particularly in the Resource Base of the Deaf, is very strong so that those students do as well as their peers"

Castleford Academy is home to the Resource Base of the Deaf​ which is a Wakefield Council provision that provides access to the curriculum for deaf pupils.

Our aim is to ensure that our pupils are fully included in academy life, educationally, socially and emotionally thus ensuring they leave secondary education as confident and independent young adults.

Our Ethos
"To ensure every deaf child reaches their maximum social and academic potential"

Our Philosophy
"We recognise and celebrate the potential of our deaf sign bilingual children. We hold a strong commitment to providing a child centred approach to develop learning."
