“I am always looking for new ways to create an environment where the pupils can grow and enjoy school more, thankfully I have some great staff to help me”

Mr Marsh - Head Teacher

Welcome to Castle Lower School

Castle Lower School is a vibrant and happy school for children aged 3 to 9 years within the Castle ward in Bedford.   At Castle we believe that every child should be given the opportunity and support to achieve their full potential and we work in partnership with parents to ensure that this is the case.  In October 2013 we retained our Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ rating, for the second time.

Our lively and well-behaved children, committed staff, active governors and supportive parents, all work together to provide a caring environment where children enjoy learning and our successes are celebrated and shared by the whole school community.

Whether your interest is as a parent, prospective parent, or a member of the local community, I hope the website gives a snapshot of the school, and we welcome visits to see the school in action, start here to find out more and keep up to date via our newsletters in the News area of the website, following us on facebook and twitter – @castlelower

Castle Lower School and Newnham Middle School are working together to federate the two schools,  information about this this proposal can be found in the Federation area of this website.

Best wishes,
Mick Marsh
