​​​​​​​​​Chair of Governor's welcome

​On behalf of the Governing Body, welcome to Castleford Academy.

As a Governing Body, we have believed that the school was "outstanding" for some time and we are delighted that this judgement has now been confirmed by Ofsted following their recent inspection.

This is an achievement not only based on exam results but considers how the school widens pupils' horizons and confidence to become responsible young people.  We are proud of our pupils' achievements and encourage them in all areas; academic, vocational, cultural and sporting.

The Governing Body works closely with the Senior Leaders, providing challenge and support while lending their considerable skills and expertise as volunteers with strong links to the local community.

Ofsted open their report by stating, "Castleford Academy is an exciting place to learn."  I hope that you can share in this excitement with us!

John McNichol MEd – Chair of Governors.
