Castle Rushen High School

Care, Quality, Opportunity

Welcome to our website. We hope the information you find here is useful.

I started at Castle Rushen High School in September 2014, I was immediately struck by the beautiful coastal location and the strong community feel of this relatively small comprehensive school, situated in the south of the Isle of Man. It provides the perfect backdrop for an education that’s focused on bringing out the best in every pupil.

Our aim is to provide a rewarding educational journey for our pupils; expanding their horizons, and inspiring them towards their post-school destination. We nurture their skills and talents in a positive, supportive environment that welcomes young people from all backgrounds.

We also prepare our pupils for the challenges that await them in adult life and offer an extensive programme of courses and activities so that each individual can explore many options before making choices about further study and future careers.

Academically, we follow the international curriculum of iGCSEs and a variety of A Level syllabuses and also offer certain BTEC and SQA qualifications. Through our extension programmes and tutor support, pupils have every opportunity to expand their skills and ambitions and our young people typically progress to either UK universities, the University College of Man or employment.

While our academic standards speak for themselves, we take a holistic approach to education and provide an exceptional range of sporting and cultural activities as well as ensuring the good health and wellbeing of every pupil.

It’s a wonderful place to learn and we hope to welcome you personally to our school in the near future.
