Welcome to Bishop’s Castle Community College.

We are a proud and very successful 11-16 school in Bishop’s Castle, South Shropshire, covering a wide geographical area with students from more than 20 primary schools, including Wales.

The Community College is an exciting and stimulating place to learn where we aim to create a thriving learning community in which every individual can achieve their highest standards. We seek to instil positive attitudes and a sense of purpose through effective challenge, high expectations of conduct and mutual respect. We are an integral part of our local community and seek to develop our students’ social awareness as part of that community as well as developing their understanding of the wider world where creativity, adventure and new ideas are encouraged.

We believe the best way to prepare our young people for the future is to encourage high aspirations, help them achieve outstanding results and develop the necessary skills and attributes to be the best they can be.

I hope this website gives you a flavour of what we are all about.

If you have any questions or would like to know more, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
