New Head teacher, Steve Durkin commented:
“I am really pleased for the young people and staff of Castle View and it was a pleasure to see the students open their envelopes and able to start the next part of their journey with confidence. It is exciting times for Castle View – I am looking forward to working with the students, staff and community to ensure Castle View continues to provide a learning environment that produces bright, articulate and confident young people of the future. We are forging ever stronger links with schools such as King John for the benefit of our students – sharing ideas, resources and expertise and we have a number of new colleagues joining the school in September. Everything we do will be for the best interest of our students.”
