Additional support

Teaching at Castle School is based on sound knowledge and understanding of each child’s needs.

Teaching is shaping around the way different pupils learn. We have a Multidisciplinary Team to develop personalised learning programmes for students.

Opportunities to follow accredited courses and develop vocational skills will be taken at Key Stage 4 and in 6th Form.

Castle 6th Form offers two or three year courses for Post 16 students who have a statement of Special Educational Need. We provide a full time, five day specialist provision that gives students an individual timetable which is geared to their specific needs and interests.
