I am delighted that you have decided to find out more about the opportunities available for students at The Castle School. We are very proud of our school and the achievements of our students, which are many and which show particular excellence in Sports, Music and the Arts. The Castle School is a vibrant and lively school that bustles and is full of energy. I always encourage parents to visit so you can meet our students, who are our greatest asset and our pride. It also means that you really imagine your child here and genuinely see if this is the right environment.
Our aim is for every child to achieve, belong and participate and this is at the heart of everything we do at The Castle School. Rated as outstanding by Ofsted, we have been for some years now not only at the top of the performance table in Somerset but in the top 5% of schools nationally for academic achievements. You can see our latest exam results on our website. We believe in the absolute moral responsibility we have for equipping students with the best possible exam results, we know that this opens doors for students and prepares them with outstanding attitudes and a strong moral foundation.
Should you think The Castle School is the right school for your child, please do contact the school and make an appointment to visit or come to one of our Open Mornings. Our students are always delighted to show off their school and answer any questions. We look forward to your family being part of our success.
