Who we are

Castle School is a specialist provision for children and young people with severe or profound and multiple learning difficulties. At Castle School, we aim to:
  • Be a happy, safe, caring environment for all our pupils and staff.
  • Be a friendly and stimulating environment where learning is fun and interesting.
  • Provide a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum appropriate to the needs of each child or young person, taught and assessed through individual learning programmes.
  • Provide relevant opportunities and experiences out of the Academy to help our young people understand being part of a wider community.
  • Develop the self esteem, self awareness and confidence of each of our pupils.
  • Work in partnership with parents, carers and other professionals.

Thank you all so much for supporting our sponsored 'Ready, Steady, Listen' event. In total, we raised an incredible £762.25 which qualified us for 60% additional funding, which now means we have £1219.20 to spend on books to develop our library resources!

@Castle_Sch_NCEA James made us super proud tonight at the fair. Although it was noisy and he was very very excited, by all the lights and sounds.. he managed well and was taking the new environment all in, with giggles and happy shrieks 🥰
