Welcome

I am extremely proud to be the Head-teacher of Belmont Castle Academy, a school which has achieved a great deal of success in recent years. Not only do we have an excellent track record when it comes to academic progress, we have also gained an enviable reputation when it comes to sporting achievement.

    MULTI COUNCIL MEETING This is a picture from today with the children from East Tilbury. Our children were great ambassadors for our school and had some really great input. Thank you to Mrs Harvey, Mr Minns and Mrs Bacon for supporting the children. https://t.co/ZKE1S7eoyI

    @TheJohnKent Thanks John good to see you once again at such an important event, Battle of Britain parade. In the words of Winston Churchill ‘Never in the field of human conflict was so much been owed by so many to so few',

    Proud to be at the Battle of Britain service, in Grays. It was really good to see young people taking a lead in giving thanks to "the Few." And it was great to see @BCA_Thurrock, Mark Jones. Mark was in the RAF before teaching and plays a leading role with our Air Cadets. https://t.co/j3yMqEhJro

    The Thameside Theatre and museum may be re-opening but as you can see from the quotes in the official statement, its long term future is very much in doubt. Please keep up the pressure on local councillors and help save YOUR Thameside #savethethameside https://t.co/7GR5zfJHC3

    @Carolin51391253 Better to postpone than to have say no to parents tomorrow
  • Belmont Castle Academy @bca_thurrock, Jul 11
    @annette_daisley Yes the timings will be the same

    Message for year 6 parents I have been checking the weather forecast for Monday throughout the weekend and it’s still saying thundery showers. We will therefore postpone the year 6 production until Thursday. Please can you pass the word around.
  • Belmont Castle Academy @bca_thurrock, Jul 10
    @Kirsty_Bibby I will chase up on this on Monday
  • Belmont Castle Academy @bca_thurrock, Jul 9
    @RoaringLion73 Whilst this is a lovely idea our year 6 children will be starting their production at 9.30am so children and parents arriving after 9 will be very distracting for them as they will be on the ball playground.
