I would like to add my welcome to that of the principal and emphasise my equal commitment on behalf of United Learning to his words. Everything we do in schools is about bringing out the best in everyone to ensure the success of our young people.
A good set of exam results held by someone with the ability to communicate, work hard, help and respect others will take you far in life. We value the development of the whole person and I hope if you visit Castle View you will see this from the manners and politeness shown by the pupils you meet.
You will also see a dedicated staff who are experts in their subjects and the demands of the examinations who will ensure pupils gain the best marks of which they are capable in public exams. We want all doors open for their future aspirations.
I set high standards for my headteachers in all my schools and expect the very best. You will not be disappointed by Castle View or Mr Down and his staff.
