New changing rooms and a 3G Astroturf were constructed between 2008 and 2010. The new Deal Town Rangers Clubhouse was constructed along the back of the Mill Road houses in 2012 when the old Clubhouse became disused; this was the HORSA hut built for The Elizabeth Carter School. The minibus garage was also constructed in 2010 to replace the disused music huts. More information is available in the documents below.

In 1999, the school became CASTLE COMMUNITY SCHOOL. The teachers and governors decided that new branding was needed for the college so a new logo was created to promote the school. The school was renamed CASTLE COMMUNITY COLLEGE in 2005 and the slogan "Community, Care Commitment" was replaced “Care Commitment and Success”. Mrs Chapman became the Principal of Castle Community School from 2001 - 2011. After her retirement, Phillip Bunn took over until 2014, then Jane Hadlow became the Interim Principal until July 2016. This was just after the school became Goodwin Academy. Simon Smith is the current Principal.

In 2008, The College was named Sports College of the Year and a joint Sixth Form was organised with Walmer Science College. In 2009, the school had been selected for a new building under the "Building Schools for the Future" programme; unfortunately, this did not go ahead. In 2010, The College became an academy after being rated "Outstanding" for the third time in a row by Ofsted.

In 2012, the school was oversubscribed for September, so the school's roll had been increased. During the academic year of 2012-2013, it was announced that Walmer Science College would close and all students would be transferred to Castle Community College. Castle Community College would have use of the former Walmer Science College site and it was announced that Castle Community College would have a brand new school for 1,300 students by 2017 under the "Priority School Building Programme". It was one of two secondary schools in Kent to be chosen for this programme.

During the February Half Term in 2016, The HORSA Hut (old DTR Clubhouse) was demolished to make way for the construction site traffic. On Saturday 13th February, the asbestos roof was removed and the building was emptied. On Monday 15th - Wednesday 17th the Building was demolished and on the following 2 days, that section of the site was checked to ensure that it was safe. The World War 2 air raid shelters were also uncovered.
