Following further government and DfE guidance, the Academy will not open to pupils until at least the 8th of March. Remote learning will therefore continue to be the main avenue to continue teaching and learning and pupils are advised to follow their normal school timetable where possible. At Castleford Academy, we are using a blend of both live and pre-recorded video lessons for remote learning. All live lessons need to be accessed through pupils' personal TEAMS calendar and pre-recorded remote learning activities will need to be accessed through the Show My Homework platform. Pupils must complete activities set and ensure that this work is submitted back to their teacher in the method requested by their teacher in the live lesson or on Show My Homework.

Academy Celebrates Hard Work and Dedication of Year 11 Pupils.

Congratulations to Year 11 pupils who have received their GCSE results this week. We recognise that this has been a very challenging time for Year 11 pupils as they were not able to sit their final exams this year. The grades that they have received are a true reflection of their ability, work ethic and the skills and knowledge they have gained over the last two years. We are delighted with their achievements and very proud of the time they have spent at Castleford Academy. We hope that their individual success will be a springboard to a very bright future. We wish them well with their next steps in their education and training.

The Chair of Governors John McNichol added “We wish all year 11 pupils every success in the future and thank parents for their support over what has been a very challenging year.”

The Headteacher George Panayiotou beamed, ‘We are delighted with the achievements of Year 11 pupils; they have always been great ambassadors for the academy. Remember to always aim high, work hard and success will be inevitable.’ Associate Headteacher, Daniella Cook added, ‘Well done to all Year 11 pupils. We are very much looking forward to celebrating pupils’ achievements at GCSE Presentation Evening in November.’
