Caister Community

All Caister students are proud of their school and where they come from.  They have a sense of service to the community and a sense of place with a world view.


Caister students are proud of their community and support it through various activities. 

For a third year Caister students will be organising and delivering events in the community to build intergenerational relationships and combat loneliness through the Our Town project. 

Over 60% of the Caister Community are over the age on 60. This supplies us with a fountain of knowledge and experience which we encourage students to explore. 

The Our Town project creates opportunities for students to plan and deliver themed events to bring our community together. The events are held either in school or at the local community hub, The Rabbit Hutch at the king George playing field. 

The students have built up a fan base in the community with local residents coming to all events. In turn these residents attend the school regularly to support the students in their drama performances and music spectaculars. 

This year students are planning three more themed events such as an Easter Social, May the force, and an end of year celebration. 

The Papillion Project 

The Academy is fortunate enough to be chosen for a transformative project by the Papillion Project, delivered by Matt Willer BEM.

An area of the school grounds has been transformed into a community garden and allotment which boasts multiple functions. A wild area for wildlife and the growth of habitats. A newly planted orchard, a compost area and multiple growing beds. 

Students have been working together to create a functional and therapeutic space. This spring we will see the installation of a Poly Tunnel which was paid for by the Caister Charities Association. 

Students will grown and harvest vegetables for the catering department and for the community food larder “ the Caister Spoon”. 

The garden will be used as part of students curriculum such as Science, catering and Art. 

From September 2024 the Garden will be sustained by students and community volunteers. 

We believe that Caister Academy student are our next generation of community leaders, employees and employers. Through our values we support and enrich our community. 

Caister Academy is also represented on the board of “Caister Cares” an organisation designed to support our community members in their time of need.
