The Castle School is proud of its wide range of extra curricular activities. These are planned with enthusiasm and dedication by teachers and in the best interests of the students. Students enjoy the practical application of their academic studies away from the school site on trips to other parts of the UK and beyond. They also benefit considerably from the many clubs and societies offered during lunchtime and after school on the site. Some activities have long standing traditions, whilst others are more recent initiatives like the BBC School News Report. In addition to the extra curricular activities there are numerous in-house enrichment events and visits which enhance student development and understanding.
