On behalf of the Trust Board, I extend a warm welcome to Castleford Academy Trust. Castleford Academy Trust converted from a single academy trust to a multi academy trust on the 1st April 2013. We are a Trust with high ambitions for our pupils. Our vision is “working together to achieve excellence for all”. 

We value the individuality of the academies within our Trust, whilst also recognising that by sharing outstanding practise and effective leadership, we can work together to develop the quality of teaching and learning for all our pupils.

Governance is a strength throughout the Trust and we acknowledge the contribution effective governance makes in reflecting the views of the local community.

As a board, our responsibility is to ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction of the Trust and to raise standards and outcomes for all pupils, regardless of starting points. Our structures and processes support and develop the Trust to benefit all our pupils, staff and the communities we serve. In our pursuit of excellence, we work hard to ensure that no child is left behind. The Trust puts pupils at the heart of everything we do.

In our commitment to excellence, we place ourselves at the forefront of educational developments, creating an environment which is innovative, a positive climate for learning and attainment that fully supports pupil’s social and emotional developments.

We hope that you find our website both informative and engaging.
