We are a federation of Baysgarth secondary school and Castledyke primary school. A federation is not the same as a MAT or a trust. We are still local authority maintained schools; we just have one governing body across the two schools. This allows us to take more strategic decisions about the education of children in our community from age 3-16.

At the moment there are six different elements to the federation:

  • Baysgarth School
  • Castledyke Primary School
  • Headway Alternative Provision
  • Get Ahead
  • Baysgarth Sports Village
  • Riverview Institute for Teacher Education

We are ambitious for our future and want to grow and expand our federation. We believe we provide a unique combination of outstanding outcomes, outstanding inclusion and outstanding facilities, all supported by brilliant staff with a passion for school improvement.
