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.

Castleford Community Challenge

Look North – Castleford Community Challenge

Castleford Community Challenge

We have teamed up with Castleford Tigers to create a challenge for all our students, staff and the wider community. Physical activity is vital for everyone’s physical and mental health. With schools and leisure facilities closed and national restrictions in place, it is very difficult to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle. The Castleford Community Challenge will provide an opportunity to exercise safely, which will improve everyone’s all-round wellbeing. 

The aim is for us to collectively complete the total distance Castleford Tigers will travel this year for their fixtures (2521.6km). This can be done by running, jogging, walking or cycling. There will be prizes available – students who take part will receive an e-praise, but there are lots of prizes available to anyone from Castleford Tigers and the PE department for the biggest distances!

Here’s how you can enter (please do both if possible)


We hope you enjoy and can’t wait to see your progress!
