Learning Together for the 21st Century

School Background

At Castle Caereinion School, we pride ourselves on the broad, balanced and full education we provide and the atmosphere of warmth, care and co-operation that pervades.

We value all pupils for their individual qualities and talents, and our central concern is that they realise their full potential.  We provide a stimulating and purposeful working environment that motivates our pupils into striving for high standards.

Our warm, family-like atmosphere and close-knit team of teachers and support staff ensure that all children are known and valued as individuals, thus easing the transition between classes and across key stages.

A school was first established in Castle Caereinion over two hundred years ago.  Today the school still stands near the Church of St. Garmon and in the heart of the village.

The school building comprises of the traditional Victorian, two-room design with several modern additions that include two new classrooms, an ICT suite and Library, and a staff room.  The building also adjoins the recently extended Community Hall, which the school uses for lunches, collective worship, PE, storage and school performances.

The school is set in beautiful surroundings.  It has its own field, garden area, playground and has the use of adjoining larger playing fields and a hard surfaced playground.

There are four classrooms, one of which is used by Bright Sparks, the pre-school, with which we have close links, thus ensuring a seamless transition and continuity from pre-school to eleven years of age.

As a result of the Education Reform Act of 1988, we have a policy of open enrolment, providing class size guidelines are followed.  The school is responsible for controlling its own financial budget and administration.

We look forward to meeting you and establishing the close working relationship that is needed, to ensure that your child has a successful and rewarding time at school.
