Following an inspection in November 2023, we’re proud to announce that our school has been judged to be Ofsted Outstanding.

The Section 5 Inspection was carried out on Tuesday 24th and Wednesday 25th October under the challenging framework which supports a holistic approach to education.  The exacting standard expects that outstanding schools are exceptional in all areas of the framework both consistently and securely.  During the inspection, inspectors judged the quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development and leadership and management which gave us the opportunity to showcase all the wonderful things that make Castle Mead Academy a special place to teach, learn and grow.

The Ofsted inspection was thorough, robust, and professionally rigorous.  During the process we were open and transparent around all aspects of school life and had much evidence to support the inspection process.
