Welcome to the new school year

Dear Parent/Carer,


Myself, along with the whole staff team, are all so pleased to be welcoming back all of our students this September as well as welcoming all the new starters to our Castle School family.  We look forward to a successful and fun year of learning ahead.

As you will no doubt already know, students at Post-16 and Love Lane will start back as usual on Monday (5th September). Our new students joining Castle@Theale will start back on Tuesday (6th September).


Term Dates

Our new term dates are now on our website, which you can find by clicking https://www.thecastleschoolnewbury.org.uk/page/?title=Term+Dates&pid=24


Pick-up and Drop-off times

These will remain the same as last year. Pupils can go into the school at 8.50am and will leave at 3pm. If you are dropping off or picking up your child, please try and park away from the school site to help with safety and congestion. If you do have to, please make sure that you do not come onto the school site before 8.40am in the morning and 2.50pm in the afternoon at the very earliest.


If you have any questions, now or in the coming weeks, please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher, the team leader or a member of the senior leadership team and we will endeavour to help.


Best wishes,

Jon Hewitt


The Castle School
