We feel it is important that parents and carers make an informed decision as to which school they would prefer their child(ren) to attend, and feel that there is no substitute for visiting any school that you are considering. Castle School has an Open Evening in September each year, but if you are unable to attend, please contact the school to make an appointment to view the School when convenient.
If your child is starting school for the first time in September or transferring from Year 6 Primary School to Year 7 Secondary School you will need to complete an application form which can be found in the back of the Admission to Schools Booklets. The closing date for these applications is normally mid October the year before they are due to start.
The information contained in the admission booklets and on this website is intended to help you in the initial stages of the process.
