We are so looking forward to the final two weeks of term and the build up to Christmas. The children in the younger years have been rehearsing their plays, the choirs can now sing carols with amazing harmonies, the main school Christmas tree has arrived, parties have been planned and the crackers have been delivered for Christmas lunch! On top of this the frosty mornings have given us some great opportunities to see the school playing fields in all their crispy glory. Only 22 days left until the big day!

We know how so many of you love updating your Pinterest boards, so we thought we would help you with some great ideas for helping your children with extra work at home, Christmas ideas (food, art and craft, drink and so much more), e-safety tips, and so much more! So why not give the boards a quick visit : CASTLE COURT PINTEREST
The site for our new sports hall is beginning to be cleared. The builders are arriving and we are very excited that the project will be completed by Easter 2017. This development is on top of the new sports fields and netball/tennis courts that were built over the summer break. Our whole site is looking better than ever. If you would like to come and visit us and have a look around the school please call our admissions team on 01202 694438.
This morning we were able to welcome over 350 children back to school. It was lovely to see so many familiar faces, as well as so many new families! This term as ever will be packed with learning, activities, plays, bonfire parties and Christmas. We look forward to it all! Regular updates can be found on Moodle (for our current parents) or Facebook, Instagram or You Tube for prospective parents. Any questions or queries please call our Admissions team on 01202 694438.
The start of the summer holidays has made us think about all the children have done over the last term, and what it means to be part of the Castle Court family. We hope that this film, of Castle Court now and then helps you to understand why we think Castle Court is such a special school, and what our Year 8s have taken from their time here.

Life at Castle Court gets busier and busier. Well done to our Common Entrance candidates who have now all won places to their schools of choice. All children from Year 3 to Year 8 are now enjoying activity week, and then next week we have the two big end of term sporting occasions, Sports Day and the Swimming Gala. The term finishes with Speech Day on Wednesday 6th July where this year we will be joined by our guest speaker, Fraser Doherty. But although this sounds like a very busy life, there is so much more. Please do visit our Facebook or Instagram for more information.
This has been a busy first half to the summer term, but on our return on Monday 6th June life will get more hectic. Common entrance exams, activities week, sports days, swimming galas, the senior play and Speech Day with our guest speaker Fraser Doherty. With best wishes for a good half-term holiday.
Sport is not just for the “A” team. Sport is for all; for life. Our children do have access to all the main team sports you would expect in a prep school, netball, hockey, rounders, football, rugby and cricket, but also more minor sports: golf, skiing, sailing, swimming, horse riding. biathle and tennis. Not everyone is a team sports player, but everyone can play sport; and enjoy sport. You just need to find the right activity for you. Click here to see more detail on our Facebook page. Or see below a picture of brothers Amir and Reza who won their novice races at a recent school’s ski competition.
The weather may be giving us three seasons in a day at the moment, but this is not putting off our sailors. The crews have now had a couple of trips to Rockley and the Weymouth Sailing Centre to help develop their sailing racing knowledge. They are looking forward to joining other crews from Prep Schools around the country in the IAPS sailing challenge next week.
The holiday courses for summer 2016 have been launched! This time the range of activities is as broad as ever, and we feel that there really is something for everyone: The “little littles” can spend time at Castle Court, taking full advantage of the fabulous grounds. The “little kids” have a range of outings planned including horse riding and trips to Moors Valley and Kingston Lacy. The “big kids” can go coasteering, visit the New Forest Waterpark, play zorbing football, enjoy “mad science” and a visit from reptiles and birds of prey specialists as well as see the latest releases at the cinema, to name but a few of the adventures on offer. If you would like to find out more please contact the school office on 01202 694438 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Numbers are limited.
