Kenny Stoddart, Chair of Governors

On behalf of the Local Governing Body, I would like to welcome you to Castleford Academy. As a newly appointed Chair, having previously been a Governor of the academy, I am delighted to take on the Chair role.

My role, including that of my fellow Governors, is to continue to stretch, challenge and support the Senior Leadership Team of Castleford Academy. To be inquisitive and question school strategies, the curriculum and how school funds are spent in the best interests of pupils.

My day job is a Director of an engineering and manufacturing apprenticeship provider that is based in Bradford, previously holding senior positions in the further education sector for almost 20 years. I have worked as an additional Ofsted inspector and overseen four Ofsted Inspections as the company Nominee.

Like other Governors on the Local Governing Body, we all want the best for the academy and its pupils, echoing the core values of the Academy’s ethos of Care, Aspire, Succeed.
