At Castle Hill we aim to provide your child with the best possible educational journey; we believe very passionately that learning should be creative and enjoyable whilst enabling every child to reach their full potential. It is proven that the children in our school make good progress and this is something that we are delighted with. We have an excellent staff team that caters to the individual needs of our children and ensuring that they receive the appropriate guidance and support.

The school has been completely rebuilt, refurbished and redecorated over the last three years. As a result we have fantastic new buildings and resources that you would struggle to find anywhere else. The children learn in a spacious and comfortable environment and have access to a huge range of equipment and technology.

Your child’s education is very much a partnership, we value the input that parents can give. We place a strong emphasis on communication between home and school and we urge parents to be involved as much as possible.

Visits to the school during the day are actively encouraged. We are very proud of our school and would love you to come and see what is going on, particularly when the children are here. If you would like to have a look round, please contact us. Pete Talbot, Head Teacher
