Nurturing children and developing excellence

Castle Court has an outstanding record in preparing pupils for a wide variety of future schools, both state and independent, at a local and national level. This is achieved through a curriculum that embraces academic rigour whilst acknowledging the importance of the enjoyment of learning and the precious time spent as a child.

 At the heart of our flourishing co-educational prep school is a curriculum that offers every child the opportunity to grow skills, acquire knowledge and develop character as well as enjoy their childhood in the safety of a nurturing environment. The importance placed on the spiritual, emotional, social, physical and academic development of each child will enable them to be positive contributors in tomorrow’s society. The landscape of tomorrow is ever-changing, but what is constant is our delivery of a broad curriculum which lays the foundation for your child’s love of learning, and firmly establishes curiosity, creativity, commitment, courage, collaboration, courtesy and compassion as the bedrock of the skills they need for their future. 

These pages outline your child’s journey through the school.  The Castle Court Pathway covers all stages of the journey and looks at your child’s progress though the school from all perspectives, whether academic, pastoral, sporting, creative or extra-curricular.  The Castle Court Pathway is an essential roadmap to enable us, and you, to ensure that your child reaches their full potential.
