Our Ethos and Values

Every Child Achieves. Every Child Belongs. Every Child Participates.


Our aims are simple. We want every child at The Castle School to achieve their true potential, participate fully, and enjoy a strong sense of belonging. We achieve this by delivering high quality teaching and learning through a broad and balanced curriculum, and a safe and structured environment where all students can thrive, and with a ‘can do’ attitude that means every child can and will take part in enrichment. We also encourage personal development and improvement by promoting values that celebrate:


• Resilience, resourcefulness and responsibility

• Leadership, loyalty and teamwork

• Integrity, motivation and independence

• Trust and respect for each individual


These are values that enable students to leave school able and motivated to make the best possible contribution to society.
