Principal's Welcome

                               Dear Parents, Carers and Students


It is my great privilege to lead such an exceptional school. Not only are we easily the highest performing school in Rutland and Stamford but we are also an exceptionally caring school, supporting each and every child every step of the way. I am incredibly proud to add that we have the best Mathematics department in England, twice winners at the National Teaching Awards, with an absolutely phenomenal progress score to match.

Every child is welcome at Casterton. Behaviour is outstanding, bullying is rare and there is a culture of scholastic excellence and mutual respect in the classroom. We have very high expectations and both children of high ability and SEND make truly exceptional progress which is way above the national average. We also provide young people with a very wide range of extra-curricular opportunities and activities including an excellent offer in the arts and sports.

You are very welcome to arrange a tour of the school at any time by just contacting my PA, Mary Sheehan, at and see us in action for yourself. We look forward to hearing from you
