My name is Victoria Buckland and I am the new Headteacher at Castle Hill Academy.  I am really looking forward to joining the school and once again working in my local community.


I have spent 16 years working within schools in New Addington as well as in Bromley and Southwark in various roles, most recently as a Deputy Head in two schools for over 8 years and a Head of School in Southwark Primary Free School.


Over the summer term I have worked closely with Miss Reynolds and the Leadership Team at Castle Hill which has enabled me to fully understand the school’s strengths and areas that are developing.  During this time it is has been clear to see how amazing the children are and also how dedicated the staff are to ensuring that every child receives the best education in an inclusive and nurturing environment.


I believe that every child has the right to a high quality education in a happy and safe setting which enables them to become confident, resilient, lifelong learners.  I have high expectations for both learning and behaviour and believe all can make outstanding progress and be successful academically in a school which works closely in partnership with parents and carers.


I look forward to working with both you and your children and with the staff to ensure that Castle Hill Academy continues to be a school that we can all be proud of.


Miss Victoria Buckland
