At Castle Newnham we understand the importance of the right curriculum and the right subject choices. The next two years of study (Year 10 and Year 11), will be vital in ensuring that aspirations can be met and doors to careers and further study can be open to all. We are fully committed to excellence in teaching with strong subject specialism and outstanding pastoral and study support. Years 10 and 11 will build on all of the knowledge and skills pupils already have. This will be a time of hard work and great opportunity to develop academically, creatively, physically and emotionally and all of the staff here are committed to helping our pupils achieve in all of these areas of school life.

The Options for academic year 2022-2023 will be available shortly.
