Headteacher George Panayiotou
Welcome to Castleford Academy's website. I hope that as you look through the website it gives you a flavour of the work we do.

Further to my recent appointment as Headteacher (June 2013), I am extremely passionate about the success of the Academy, its students and staff.  I am proud to accept the position and having worked at the school for the last ten years, look forward to leading the school into a successful future.

In September 2012 the Academy was judged 'Good' by OFSTED in all aspects of our work including 6th form provision. We continue to work on the post OFSTED action plan to ensure we can aim for an 'Outstanding' rating in 2016. A key focus of the Academy is to provide our students with the very best standards in teaching and learning so that every pupil can achieve their potential.

Please feel free to contact us if you would like to visit the Academy. We look forward to meeting you!
