Welcome to Castle Academy.
Castle Primary School converted to an Academy on 1st March 2015 joining with Congleton High School and Black Firs Primary as part of Congleton Multi-Academy Trust. By working together and sharing all of our expertise it is envisaged that our family of schools will continue to grow and develop providing exceptional learning opportunities for all of our pupils. Castle Primary School has also become a feeder school for Congleton High School.
As Head Teacher I am extremely proud to be leading Castle Primary School through these exciting changes supported by hardworking and committed staff. Our school offers children high quality learning experiences in a semi-rural setting, encouraging them to develop new skills and knowledge both in the classroom and the outdoors. We are also adept at offering all our children opportunities within performing arts, producing concerts throughout the year.
Our school has continued to grow over the last year whilst maintaining the values and community feeling of a small school. We enjoyed great success with our results in 2016 in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Our Early Years children also achieved a good level of progress.
Over the summer of 2016 our school kitchen was fully refurbished and is now providing quality meals and healthy snacks for all ages. Staff are also utilising the teaching kitchen offering lessons to all the children so that they can learn about healthy eating and balanced meals.
Children attend residential visits to various local centres and all ages are also able to participate in numerous after school activities. We operate a Before and After School Club run by school staff.
Our nursery has a curriculum that covers all aspects of learning through play to encourage physical, intellectual, emotional, social and language development. Our qualified staff are well trained and have many years of experience in childcare. We employ specialist Sports coaches who have trained in developing physical skills to our youngest pupils.
There are a few places remaining for Nursery aged children to start September 2017. Please contact the school on 01782 433218 if you would like to arrange a visit to look round.
