​Message from Head Boy and Head Girl ​ ​


To be chosen as Head boy and Head girl at Castleford Academy is a real honour. When we were in Year 7 we did not believe we would eventually take up the positions of Head Boy and Head Girl, it simply seemed too far away and too daunting. Now we have achieved such a prestigious position, we will ensure that we will do an outstanding job in the role of Head Boy and Head Girl.

Moreover, we look forward to working alongside the outstanding staff, prefect team and students to make this academic year the best yet and top last year's GCSE results.

It will be a privilege to work closely with new and existing students to make sure they feel as comfortable as possible in school.

The prefect team will be planning a variety of charity events and projects for charities we truly believe aid our community. These include the MacMillan coffee morning, a carol service at Newfield Lodge Care Home, food bank drive and the clothes drive.

In addition, we believe that including parents in the educational loop is vital to ensure your children receive the best help and education they can. We all have high aspirations and hopes for our school; we hope to fulfil these and aim to help each student reach their maximum potential.
