Said Caroline: “It was great to meet Deputy Head Jeni Ward and Libby Nicholas Chief Executive of the Reach4Trust. This is an important time for the school. The staff are keen, and the pupils have great resources to use, including ipads in every classroom. The pupils seem excited to learn and many of them picked up awards today. I hope with the support of the Trust, Castle Academy can bring out the best for local children.
Said Sandra: “It was so nice to see what changes have been made at Castle Academy just in the last couple of years. They wanted to improve school meals, so with the Council’s help, they invested in new kitchens on site. And the new building for the reception class is a wonderful space to learn. I’ve told the school that we will do everything we can to promote learning in the school and I look forward to our next visit.”
