A place for those who want to stand out from the crowd.
You wanted flexibility, choice and great academic support...
At Castle School you can choose to do the majority of your learning in school, at home, whilst on a trip abroad or in fact anywhere with WiFi… You can choose from 20 A level subjects or opt for our bespoke BTEC in Business (or a combination of both). Whatever your choice there will be on line 24 hour support, in school 5 day a week graduate support and six weekly study sets with face to face A level teachers to consolidate learning, revisit topics, run through concepts and sit test papers – everything you need to keep on track for great exam results.
You wanted to be treated like adults and be allowed to make your own choices.
Again, we’ve listened – you will have access to amazing support, advice and encouragement, with feedback on how your studies are going on a weekly basis. We will make suggestions to help you succeed but ultimately you will be in charge. You will be respected and your opinions will be counted. Sixth form is a serious choice and not a legal requirement. We will help keep you focussed, support any difficulties you may have and assist where necessary but you will always be treated as a mature individual.
Some of you are concerned that your GCSE studies were disrupted this year...
You might be nervous that you’re not prepared sufficiently for A Levels. We recognise this and have therefore included an option for you to have early access to a broad bank of GCSE catch up material to ensure you are ready for the start of your A Level courses in September.
Some of you wanted to undertake some study at Pembrokeshire College...
Whilst still benefitting from the additional support offered at Castle School – no problem - you can opt to do one A level at the college from a specific list of subjects one day per week.
You wanted no uniform...
Parents wanted you to be smart – we don’t expect you to wear a uniform but we do insist you own a smart business suit for interviews, seminars etc.
You wanted so much more than just lessons and studying
We understand – this is not a time to tread water before university; it is a time to work hard but also a time to spread your wings and expand your horizons. We have all manner of opportunities on offer – please see our list of extra curricular activities.
