About Our School


Attitude Determines Altitude

Castle Hill Academy is a new academy for pupils aged 2-11 years, with an Early Years, Junior and Enhanced Learning Provision.  It is a member school of the Platanos Trust, an ambitious and thriving community of schools.

We have an unshakeable belief in all of our pupils and we firmly believe in our motto that Attitude Determines Altitude. We expect all pupils to be aspirational and to achieve beyond their expectations regardless of their background, starting point or special educational needs.

We are proud of the strong partnership that we have developed with our parents/carers, the local community and partner organisations, with the common goal of providing an outstanding education to all of our pupils.

In the school's first Ofsted inspection in November 2019, the school was graded 'Good' in all categories. Inspectors agreed that pupils at Castle Hill Academy make strong progress in reading, writing and mathematics.


An inclusive school for pupils of all abilities

Castle Hill Academy is an inclusive school and caters for pupils of all abilities. Pupils at the school are part of an inspirational learning environment. Since joining the Platanos Trust, we have seen a rapid improvement in pupils' achievement and we aim to ensure that all pupils at Castle Hill Academy develop into well-rounded individuals and citizens of the modern world.
