The announcement that Castle View will join the successful Zenith Multi-Academy Trust made the front page and page 2 of the Canvey Echo, with parents in abundance showing their support of the decision over social media platforms. This occurred just after Castle View’s successful, well-attended Open Day.
In July, Castle View held a surprise event for students to celebrate a year of achievement, the implementation of the new college system and Castle View’s academic success. The students worked in colleges across numerous events, such as The Crystal Maze, a roller disco and an Army Training Course. All the events were designed to shape character and challenge their resilience to the unexpected… and of course to celebrate the end of a fantastic year.
A big thankyou to Essex Police and Castle View School for leading the way in hosting the first ‘Hidden Harm’ workshop – a workshop designed to bring to light the impact of concealed weapons on local communities and what students could do to be vigilant. We were honoured that Essex Police chose our school to play host to their first Hidden Harm workshop. There is nothing more important to us than the welfare and safety of our students and it was a privilege to see every child in Year 9 actively engaged in the talks. It was certainly a true testament to how mature and socially aware they are. We’re very proud of our youngsters and we’d like to thank the officers for spending the time with our learners, ensuing that the community we are proud to be part of is kept safe.
Congratulations to Katie, Billie and Bobbi from Castle View School who recently won the science and maths competition at the recent “Scholars Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths Awards” in June. The award was for their research work in using herbs and spices as an alternative to antibiotics. Pictured are the 3 students with their proud teacher Mr Cox.
