As Acting Principal, I have great pleasure in welcoming you to Cathedral Academy, Wakefield’s only Church of England secondary school. Our vision is to offer the best possible experience for all of the children and young people in our care, and an experience that prepares them for life.
Students and parents are joining the academy at an exciting time. Cathedral Academy is currently working with the Trinity Multi-Academy Trust (MAT), a family of schools delivering consistently outstanding education for children and young people across the region. The flagship school within the MAT is Trinity Academy Halifax, an Ofsted outstanding provider which is one of the best non-selective schools in the country for GCSE and A-level results.
CAPA Juniors is an exciting offer for young people who have a real desire to pursue an education and career pathway in the Arts. Cathedral Academy is proud to run the CAPA Juniors programme. Each cohort accepted onto the CAPA Juniors programme follows an enhanced secondary curriculum with additional Performing and Creative Arts training.
Whilst the Arts subjects form a significant part of the CAPA Juniors curriculum, students are very much part of the Cathedral Academy family, accessing a full and rigorous academic curriculum and being provided with the care, guidance and support needed to succeed in all areas.
