At Castle Mead Academy, our careers programme is experienced as a rich culture that shines throughout the school. Strong leadership drives an inspirational, progressive programme that offers every scholar key life skills and valuable experience of the world of work. Scholars are inspired to explore a wide variety of options and future pathways.

The Roots & Wings programme aims to support the aspirations of all our scholars and to everyone with regular access to employers, career guidance and work experiences to support scholars in making progress and succeed in learning and work. We believe that careers education supports the functioning of our social mobility at grassroots level.

Our Careers Leader, Mrs D Walker, is suitably experienced and qualified to lead our careers strategy at Castle Mead. If you have any queries regarding careers at Castle Mead, please do direct them to Mrs Walker in the first instance ([email protected]).
