Message from the Principal

THE last half term has been particularly exciting, thanks to the launch of our brand new Centenary College – which has been extremely well received. Utilising brand new state-of-the-art equipment and classrooms, the college will deliver Level 3 BTEC courses specialising in Health and Social Care, Sport and Engineering. And, what will really set us apart from other local post-16 providers is that every student will be guaranteed a one day a week on industrial placement. Aimed at helping students into work, or onto further study, the minimum entry level requirements for the college will be 5 A* - C GCSEs. 

Alongside study of a BTEC Level 3 (the equivalent of 2 A Levels), students will also be offered a choice of subsidiary Level 3 Diploma courses to make their qualifications up to 3 A Level equivalents. The Level 3 Diplomas will include Criminology, Business/Enterprise and Entrepreneurship, Engineering, Sport, Health and Social Care, Childcare and Creative Media Production.
The work placement element gives the chance for the young people of this area to work in an industry that they are passionate about and it will help them kick start their careers.

We are very fortunate to have fantastic, well established, links with local employers, who are all keen to offer our students the chance to turn their aspirations into opportunities.
The college has the full backing of Wakefield City Academies Trust which views the development as an integral part of Goole Academy’s raising standards agenda and greater community involvement.
To keep up to date with developments and for more information see www.facebook.com/CentenaryGoole or @CentenaryGoole on Twitter.

I would ask all parents/carers to continue to support the Academy as it moves forward. We insist on the highest standards of uniform and behaviour and, by working in partnership, I'm confident we can build a community based on enjoyment, hard work and respect.

At Goole Academy we are confident about our future.  We hope that visitors will gain a sense of our caring ethos, positivity and determination. I look forward to continuing to work with you during 2015 to build an Academy that our young people deserve and of which we can all be proud.

Please use our Academy email address (wearelistening@goolehighschool.org) if you have any concerns, or need help in any way.
