Business in the Community Education Big Tick 2011 (re-accredited 2012)

for our support and sponsorship of Castle View Enterprise Academy.

In 2006 Northumbrian Water Limited (NWL), decided to become the lead sponsor for a new city academy to replace a failing school, Castle View School, in Sunderland.

The decision was taken in response to a desperate need in the deprived local community, largely of third generation unemployed families, to provide their young people with a caring and supportive learning environment, relevant qualifications, opportunity and hope.

As one of only a handful of large employers in the area, NWL felt a responsibility to support this community and to put interventions in place so that there would be a pool of young people who could gain employment in the future.
