Welcome

Whilst providing a rigorous academic curriculum with a strong focus on literacy and numeracy, we also place a great emphasis on the wider areas such as sport, music, art, drama and languages – all of these subject areas being led by specialist graduate teachers.

We pride ourselves on our community spirit, rooted in a comprehensive pastoral care system that enables all pupils to thrive as individuals within a group setting. Our ethos of personal development is based on our founding motto “mens sana in corpore sano” (a sound mind in a healthy body), a motto which is still as relevant today as we make our way through the 21st century as it was in 1904.

Supplementing our academic and pastoral provision is an extensive daily programme of extra-curricular hobbies ranging from chess to swimming, basketball to sewing, animation to junior gourmet. In addition we have a wonderful Library and Information Centre that supports the individual and collaborative learning habits established during the primary years here at Castle Park.

We extend to you an invitation to visit the School to witness its warm and welcoming atmosphere and to see at first hand the high-quality teaching and learning that are part of the busy daily life of our pupils.
