Welcome To Castle Mead Academy

Castle Mead Academy is a new secondary academy located in the heart of historic Leicester. At Castle Mead we strive to give pupils both ‘Roots and Wings’. Roots to keep them grounded, and wings so as they can fly. Across their fifteen terms with us, we build their intelligence and character so as they grow to be articulate, resilient, well-rounded individuals who excel academically, in the arts and on the sporting field. Our pupils enjoy the riches of an ambitious curriculum so as they are ‘heirs of all that has gone before’, inheriting all of the rich knowledge from the past to better shape the future.

Castle Mead Academy is part of the The Mead Educational Trust. As such, we are fortunate to be able to replicate and build on Rushey Mead Academy’s excellent reputation and outstanding track record of high academic achievement, inclusive practice, strong spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, and knowledge rich curriculum.

For further information on our arrangements for full opening in September in light of Coronavirus, please see the link below.
