Roy Vaughan

As Chair of Governors of Crofton Academy, I extend to you a warm welcome for visiting our Academy website. I am blessed with a dedicated team of committed and skillful Governors who will as always, be working tirelessly with Academy Leaders to ensure the very best in care and education.  As a consequence, our pupils develop and mature into capable adults and citizens, able to accomplish anything they set their minds to and making a positive and lasting contribution to the many communities from which they come.

2020 The start of new era for Crofton Academy

Although this year has been overshadowed by the health crisis that has touched every family and many aspects of our lives, the Academy has undergone a very significant change. Three years of careful research and evaluation came to fruition in May when we were delighted to join Castleford Academy Trust. This is a very exciting time for us all and the collaboration that is already having an impact will gain pace as our pupils soon return to full time education.

I am in no doubt that the combined experience, skills and knowledge of the Trustees, Governing Bodies, Leadership teams and staff will ultimately result in the very best for all pupils in the Trust irrespective of their different starting points. Working alongside you, the parents / carers that we know share our passion to create a bright and promising future for our pupils, we will undoubtedly succeed.
