 Transition Management Board for Castle, Denaby Main and Hillside Academies

Castle Academy is part of the Astrea Academy Trust.

On 1st June 2016 Castle Academy formally converted into the Astrea Academy Trust (previously known as Reach4 Academy Trust). We are pleased to be looking ahead and planning for the academy’s future on a number of fronts.  This includes governance.

Astrea use ‘transition boards’ as an interim step towards securing an appropriate full governing body in line with the Astrea governance model.

We are in an exciting transition period and our Local Governing Body is being developed from the Transition Board.
