Welcome to the Castle Partnership Academy Trust. Our vision is to improve the life chances of all our children and young people whatever their backgrounds, skills and capabilities.
Our schools are Burton End Primary Academy, Castle Manor Academy and Place Farm Primary Academy. We are situated close together in the town of Haverhill, Suffolk, near to the borders of both Essex and Cambridgeshire.
The Partnership is committed to all through education, firmly believing that a love of learning should be nurtured from a very young age and that the traditional phases of education should be integrated to secure continuity, progression and high standards.
We know how crucial outstanding teaching is and aim to provide a rich, relevant, bespoke curriculum and experiences that promote outstanding learning, achievement and excellent attitudes to learning.
The Castle Partnership Academy Trust understands how vital it is for our pupils and students to attain high levels of literacy and mathematical knowledge. We focus on putting in place the best teaching strategies in order to secure high standards of literacy and numeracy.
Promoting young peoples’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and their physical well-being is a key priority for us. We want all of our pupils and students to have high aspirations and to thrive in a supportive, highly cohesive learning community.
We focus relentlessly on high expectations for everyone involved in the Castle Partnership Academy Trust. We ensure that our staff have the best professional development opportunities, our families are supported and share our vision and that our children and young people become responsible, independent members of society.
