Letters to Students & Parents

13th September 2021

Dear Parent/Carer,

It has been wonderful to welcome both students and staff back to school this week and to see so many smiling faces. May I take this opportunity to wish a very warm welcome to all families that are new to our school community.

It has been an absolute delight to meet all our new Year 7’s and other students who have joined the academy for the first time this year. I have unashamedly high expectations for all our students, and it has been fantastic to see them in lessons learning and progressing. We are very excited about the new resources we have such as a Laser Cutter in our Product Design Department, which will offer wonderful learning opportunities for our students and over the coming months. Please do follow our Twitter feed to see the products that our students will be designing with it.  We are also looking forward to the transformation of our IT provision to further support our students learning.  I will keep you informed of the many other improvements that will be made to our academy over the coming months.

We are also re-launching our enrichment programme and next week students will be given the opportunity to attend music clubs at the academy including LCA Singers. If your child is interested in learning a musical instrument, please email Mrs Noble on sn@lincolncastleacademy.co.uk and we can provide you with all the information you require.

I would also like to thank you all for your support on the new uniform policy, the students are looking incredibly smart. Our uniform plays a key role in promoting pride, self-confidence, and a feeling of belonging within the student body. These factors contribute to students' wellbeing, and removes the points of difference between students, thus unifying the academy community and providing a greater focus on learning. As I previously stated if you require any support with uniform, do not hesitate to contact the school and we will support you.

As I mentioned in my previous letter, our canteen is now being run by Mellors. There have been some teething issues and to support the large demand for the canteen service we will now be having split breaks and lunches. This will enable all students to get food promptly and quickly.

It is important that the records we hold about your child are accurate. From new phone numbers or home addresses to changes in a child’s medical details, it is critical that the information on our school system is up to date.

If you need to make any changes, please email enquires@lincolncastleacademy.co.uk or call 01522 529203.

I am really looking forward to the term ahead.  Our staff, as always, are ready to do all that they can to provide your child with the support and learning opportunities they need to ensure they achieve their full potential. Thank you in advance for your continued support.

Yours sincerely,
Mrs E Halpin,
Principal

Outstanding Year 11 Results at Lincoln Castle Academy

Following a year of disruption, Year 11 students at Lincoln Castle Academy have secured outstanding GCSE and vocational results.  Students achieved a record number of top grades, with the academy’s Attainment 8 figure increasing further this year to 4.4, an average increase of half a grade.

Teacher-assessed grades saw record numbers of students achieving a standard basic pass in Maths and English at 60% while 34% achieved a strong basic pass in both.

76% of Year 11s recorded a standard level 4 pass in English, with 55% achieving the strong grade 5 or above.  In Maths, 66% reached level 4 with 37% achieving grade 5 or higher.

The majority of Lincoln Castle Academy students now begin their Level 3 studies in our Sixth Form whilst other students progress into employment or apprenticeships.

Mrs Laming congratulated all Year 11s on their achievements. “This year group experienced unimaginable disruption, not only through several lockdowns but also during periods of self-isolation.  Students had to learn to work in new ways and continuously adapt.  This year group demonstrated incredible resilience and hard work.  They produced robust portfolios of evidence which were then moderated and scrutinised.  I am incredibly proud of them and the character they have demonstrated.

I would also like to thank parents and carers for the support given to their child and their commitment to the partnership between home and school during this challenging time.

During this unprecedented year, I would also like to pay tribute to the Lincoln Castle Academy staff.  The entire team of teaching and support staff worked incredibly hard in challenging circumstances.  They adapted the curriculum, developed new approaches to teaching and continued to provide consistent pastoral care for all students whether in the academy or through remote learning.  During the past 18 months we have had to overcome some extraordinary challenges; I am enormously grateful for the commitment to ensure students achieved their potential.”

As always students go on to study a wide variety of courses at university, they include: Sociology at Manchester University, Musical Theatre at Goldsmiths, Psychology at Birkbeck, Forensic Psychology at Coventry, Fine Art at Sheffield Hallam, Architectural Technology at Liverpool John Moores, International Tourism Management at Leeds Beckett and Clinical Psychology, Criminology and Film Production at Lincoln University. Apprenticeships include retail, childcare and a number of students now begin their training in the Royal Marines.

Mrs Laming congratulated all Year 13s on their achievements. “I’m immensely proud of this year group and their resilience and hard work. Students worked incredibly hard to create robust portfolios of evidence, which were then moderated and scrutinised.  Now this talented year group will go on to achieve great things and we wish them the very best in their future careers.”

“I would like to thank parents and carers for the support given to their child and their commitment to the partnership between home and school during this challenging time.”
