About The Costello School
The Costello School is a popular and successful comprehensive school providing education for students aged 11 – 16. The school also puts great emphasis on its work with our community partners which provides the foundation for our Learning Trust.
The school has established an orderly and caring environment and one of high academic standards with a strong pastoral system that supports a happy, caring school where students want to be.
The school is situated on the edge of Basingstoke and its buildings are well maintained with an appropriate range of specialist rooms. Great pride has been placed on the enhanced learning environment. There are extensive playing fields and, despite being a town school, looks over countryside to its rear.
The school premises centre on the buildings originally provided in 1912 for the Girls’ High School, then numbering about 150 students. Considerable extensions have been added at various times since then and the original building has been modernised and adapted to the needs of today.
The School has four main feeder schools which provide about 70% of our students with the remainder coming from other local schools. The town is served by two Further Education Colleges.
