Dear Parents/Carers,

Castle View School is pleased to announce that it is officially part of the Zenith Multi-Academy Trust. 

The school has been working collaboratively with The King John School and other schools within the trust for the past two years.  Castle View has been on a journey of continued improvement and this will help accelerate progress.

Dr Wilson, CEO of the Zenith Multi Academy Trust said:

We’re delighted to say that Castle View is now approved to join Zenith Multi Academy trust, which means it will be formal partner of The King John School. I have been Headteacher of The King John School for 19 years now and I am very pleased to have Castle View, which is an improving school, now with strong leadership (as stated by Ofsted) join Zenith. Over the last 19 years I have been proud to see King John move into Outstanding, with results that put us as one of the top schools in the county. Having appointed most of the leadership team at Castle View I am confident that the school will very soon mirror the same standard as King John. Both Mr Durkin and I are excited about the future and I am confident that we will continue to raise standards in all areas.

Head Teacher, Steve Durkin commented:

Dr Wilson and I have been working together for the past two years. I am so proud of the community and what Castle View School has become, in particular how it is increasingly becoming a first choice with parents, students and staff, all of whom have heard about the changes and the way we work. They want to be part of it.  Joining the Zenith Trust bodes well for a very promising future for our school.
