A few quotes from our parents:

What our Chair of Governors thinks...

I would recommend Castleton to any parent who is looking for a school that will support, develop and nurture their child. All children are respected and treated as individuals, talents are quickly recognised and developed. Children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) receive excellent support from a specialist team who ensure a personalised programme is put in place so that any barriers to learning do not stop them from reaching their full potential.
The staff, under the guidance of the dedicated and professional Senior Leadership Team, are committed to ensuring that each child in the school reaches their full potential, no-one is left behind. They constantly review their practice and undergo regular professional development training to ensure teaching and learning is at least good if not outstanding.
The curriculum is broad and balanced with an outstanding level of enrichment including sporting, musical, cultural and creative experiences both in and out of school. Each year group has an annual planned programme of out of school experiences and from Year 4 upwards this includes residentials. the school owns two minibuses so the cost of trips is kept to a minimum.
I assure you, your child will have the time of their life if you choose Castleton for them.
