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.

Let’s Get Social

A group of students in our Formal Pathway are now accessing @NCEADukes fitness suite once a week. The students demonstrated a fantastic understanding of the safety rules for how to use the equipment. The levels of engagement and enjoyment was brilliant to see!

1/2 We hope everyone has had a lovely Christmas.
We would like to give a special thanks to those who helped bring the magic of Christmas to Castle. Thank you to Jill from AkzoNoble, for joining us at our Christmas Fair and making us sparkle with Christmas themed glitter tattoos.

1/2 Castle School has certainly had a lively few weeks, and from the looks of the photos, it seems the students have thoroughly enjoyed themselves. A big thank you goes out to the committed staff team who, even after a long term, have made the recent weeks particularly special.
