Executive Headteacher



t is a privilege to be the Executive Headteacher at Castle School and work alongside such dedicated staff to care for our students and to create opportunities for them to prosper and flourish.  Our teaching and support staff are highly qualified, very skilled and share a commitment to ensuring every student makes the best possible progress.

We are a growing collaboration of schools that provides pupils with the opportunity to study an ambitious and broad curriculum alongside a fantastic welfare and pastoral support offer. We pride ourselves on Never Giving Up on pupils and work to adapt our approaches to meet a wide range of needs.

Ours is truly a unique learning experience and one that is centred on our strong partnership with our pupils and their families, realising each individual’s potential.  Our core values of RESPECT underpin everything we do and are a reference point for helping us to re-engage pupils in learning. We believe that all pupils can be great today and even better tomorrow.

Our schools offer inclusive environments where every individual is valued and diversity is celebrated.  We are committed to the equality of opportunity, and we are rightly proud of our caring and nurturing ethos. When pupils leave us, they are confident, have high aspirations for their own future and are well-prepared to be an active citizen of both today and the future.

I hope that you find our website helpful and informative and that it gives you a sense of our success, the opportunities we provide, and just what a truly amazing places our schools are to work and study.
