With your help Castle School Friends is gifting the school over £4,000 worth of equipment in readiness for the new school year in September 2021

The money will be spent on items for several departments following discussion with teachers: including microscopes, musical instruments and textbooks.

Some of the funds will pay for three damage-proof picnic tables for Year 7 and 8 students; with outdoors seating at a premium now year groups are assigned different space at break time.

Fundraising events for the new term include a quiz night and car boot sale. We're planning a gardening day too so watch this space.

Committee members support Year 11 Prom celebration event in Summer 2021

CSF committee members loved serving up 'mocktails’ for Year 11 students at their celebratory ‘Prom’ event in July. It was great to see the students having fun and we were very happy to offer some iced soft drinks to keep everyone cool. Thanks to Justin, Will, Rachel, Cindy and Deb.

Two car boot sales in Summer 2021

Buyers and sellers grabbed lots of bargains during two car boot sales in early summer. The events raised over £800 for the school and we were lucky with the sunny weather - thanks to everyone who came along and supported us.

Gardening Day for 2021 - Gardening Day

The school saw hedges trimmed, paths tidied, weeds removed, brambles snipped, wood chips spread and a raised flower bed removed.

The main school reception area and the Sixth Form Centre entrance were worked on by two small teams of committee members and parents who made the most of the beautiful weather.

All the jobs were completed safely and successfully and the waste taken away for recycling. Good work team!
