Welcome to Castleward Spencer Academy

Castleward Spencer Academy opened in September 2021 as part of Derby City Council’s development plan for education in the Castleward area of Derby. This is part of a local regeneration plan. It caters chiefly for the educational needs of the children from the new homes being built in the area and will strive to be central to community development.

The academy is part of the Spencer Academies Trust and has close links to both Wyndham and Chetwynd Primary schools plus St Giles Special School– all of which are outstanding academies within the Trust, leading on educational development through research across the East Midlands.

Castleward Spencer Academy is part of The Spencer Academies Trust, a multi-academy trust with schools across the East Midlands, and with a strategic focus on Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. A high performing regional MAT with a national reputation for excellence, Spencer Academies Trust schools include primary, secondary and sixth form provision.
