Castle High School and Visual Arts College is an 11-16 voluntary aided, co-educational High School near to the centre of Dudley.
The school has maintained its well founded traditions of high quality teaching and learning, excellent facilities, discipline and achievement for many years, and it is now leading the way in changing positively for the future. As caring professionals, all our staff are committed to ensuring that students fulfil their potential and flourish academically, individually and socially.
We are rightly proud of our facilities which feature both traditional and modern architecture in large self contained grounds. We can boast a large modern sports hall, a dance studio, a gymnasium, 8 well equipped Science laboratories, a brand new Visual Arts Studio, a library, extensive IT facilities, a hall, a dining room, music rooms with practice facilities, a full range of technology rooms and many other well equipped classrooms, offices and meeting rooms.
In order to support student learning we have a large teaching and support staff including classroom assistants, learning support staff, technicians and an extensive range of clerical help.
Students are cared for by our pastoral system which serves to support learners to achieve their best. We believe that we have a reputation for producing well motivated students who can rightly take their place in our ever changing society.
Throughout the school, expectations are high and are based on a caring and orderly community which encourages students to have respect for themselves, for others and for their surroundings. We encourage parents to play an active role in the work of the school, and we give them the information to enable them to support their children whilst they learn.
Our students are important to us and we all endeavour to make their time with us as rewarding and successful as is possible.
I hope the information in this pack gives you a flavour of Castle High School. If you would like to visit, please call and make an appointment and we will be very happy to give you a guided tour.
We are proud of what we achieve here and we are keen to spread the ‘magic’ that is on offer at Castle.
