Dear students, staff, parents and friends of Castle Rushen High School,
I am delighted to welcome you to our school through this website, which provides some key information about the school. It will give you pointers and links to other relevant areas too, as well as identifying key people to contact if you need help.
Castle Rushen High School is a vibrant learning community that is developing a truly comprehensive approach to individual development of all students and staff. We aim to provide a fully inclusive opportunity for all.
It is my personal hope that members of the school’s community will both contribute to and learn much from their experience here. If each of us is able to look back at our time at Castle Rushen and feel that we were helped to be the person we have become, to know that we were supported in moving on in our aspirations and that we gave what we could at the time then I will be satisfied that we have done our job well.
I hope that you enjoy looking at the site and that it helps you to find out more about our school. Note that we usually leave older posts on the site so that you can find them if you need them. If you have suggestions about information you would like to see here, please let me know.
During the morning of the 26th November Year 11 will be heading to the Villa Marina to take part in this year’s Employment and Skills Fair. This event provides students with a fantastic opportunity to develop skills, meet prospective employers and seek advice on preparing to enter the world of work!
Before arriving at the Villa Marina students will use part of their tutorial time to devise a plan of action. They will be encouraged to think about the type of advice that they want to seek and which employers they are interested in visiting. On returning to school the students will reflect on their visit and start to think about what they need to do next.
Students and parents are encouraged to think carefully about the event in advance. Discuss what you want to get out of the visit and which stands you should visit with good, well thought out questions. If you would like to see what it’s all about please visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60UdtU2bvGU to watch a video about the event.
It has come to our attention that some suppliers are selling skinny jeans style trousers as school wear. Please note that these are NOT acceptable as CRHS uniform.
