Castle Hill Academy Castle Hill Academy

A Platanos Trust School




Coronavirus (Covid-19) update: The school is now CLOSED to ALL pupils as a result of reported cases of Coronavirus in school.

Castle Hill Academy WILL BE CLOSED  from Friday 20th March 2020 until further notice. 

This decision has been a difficult and upsetting one to make. However, following Public Health England advice and when assessing the risks to our children, staff and families at home, in addition to the need for many in our community to now self-isolate for 14 days, we have no other choice but to close.



The Salvation Army runs 'The Vine' foodbank in New Addington. This is located down the lane between 11 & 13 Salcot Crescent, New Addington.

The Vine is open for donations on Tuesday and Friday evenings from 7-8pm and for food referrals on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. We operate a voucher system for food parcels. Vouchers are issued by local churches and schools, a number of local authority departments and the Citizens' Advice Bureau. Please call 01689 844136 for more information.
