​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Year ​9 Keepmoat Housing Project

For 6 weeks Year 9 pupils from Castleford Academy have joined forces with Year 9 pupils from Airedale Academy to work on this project culminating in a presentation to their family members at the University Centre, Wakefield on Wednesday 25th April.

The 30 pupils from both schools worked in mixed groups of 5 or 6 to invent their own housing development company, learning skills in marketing, design and costing's as well as learning the vital skill of working closely with new people.​

The event, and the project as a whole, was a massive success with guest speakers from local universities and representatives from Keepmoat​ joining in the celebration.
