The Community College Bishop’s Castle is a popular rural secondary school, which provides our community with good to outstanding development, learning and progress in a positive, pleasant learning environment. We were described by OFSTED as having a “committed staff team” that is “determined to create a positive learning culture”. All judgements were good.

Our well-behaved students respond positively to our hard-working and highly committed staff. They achieve well and leave the school with results that are above the national average. You will be joining the school at an exciting stage of its development.

The Community College is an exciting and stimulating place to learn, one that treats all
students as individuals, challenges and actively supports them, and provides the widest
range of educational opportunities possible. It is a safe and tolerant society, which operates
on the basis of mutual respect, with high expectations of conduct, a high regard for moral
courage and teamwork. It is a place that supports, and is supported by its local community,
but seeks to develop students’ understanding of the wider world where creativity, adventure
and new ideas are encouraged.
We believe the best way to prepare our young people for the future is to encourage high
aspirations, help them achieve outstanding results and develop the necessary skills and
attributes to be the best that they can be.
