Welcome to Castle Mead Academy
Castle Mead Academy is a vibrant, ambitious and progressive school.
We have a commitment to the highest level of pastoral care, academic achievement and keeping scholars safe.
Located in the heart of historic Leicester, at Castle Mead we strive to give our scholars both ‘Roots and Wings’. Roots to ground them in our values, and wings so as they develop autonomy to fly away and put into practice all that they have learnt. 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 scholars 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 the Trust’s reputation and outstanding track record of high academic achievement, inclusive practice and championing the wellbeing of all.
Our culture is underpinned by our four Key Drivers:
- Everyone is capable of excellence
- We develop the whole self
- We make no excuses
- Feedback is a gift
