Headteacher’s Welcome

Dear Parents/Carers

I am delighted to have been appointed Headteacher at The Castle School and am hugely proud of our school and the achievements of our students, in particular within the Arts, Music and Sports.  At The Castle School, we value strong positive relationships and this makes the school such a vibrant and lively place to work. I would encourage you to visit, so you can see the school in action and meet our wonderful students.  This will give you the opportunity to imagine your child here and see that this is the right school for you and your family.

The history and tradition of The Castle School is what makes it such a privilege to be part of this family.   Our aim continues to be 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 that education should empower young people, giving them the knowledge to make sense of the world and grow into citizens who make a difference.  This must be supported by a curriculum that gives students the power to think for themselves, shaped by what they need to know, understand and fulfil, in order to have happy, successful and prosperous lives. 

We look forward to your family being part of our success.

 Mr James Lamb
