Welcome from our Principal
Welcome to Ark Castledown. We are a community primary school that is dedicated to providing the very best education for the children of our town.
We hold a strong child-centred approach to teaching, where consistency, praise, encouragement and challenge are key. We believe that every child has a unique potential and we work hard to inspire and motivate children to achieve their goals.
We know that a successful and happy school depends on all of us working together, and that parents make an important contribution to children’s achievements at school. We are committed to developing excellent working relationships with our families and all members of our school community.
Please have a look at our website and if you have any questions do not hesitate to contact us.
