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.

@Castle_Sch_NCEA James was super brave this morning feeding our rabbit Timmy a carrot. He's been watching him more and more and is started to become more interested and confident around him 😊🐰

πŸ‘Έ We recently worked with @Castle_Sch_NCEA to capture their Jubilee Celebration Day.

🚁 This was an amazing day both capturing the event and also showing some of the students the drones we were using.
