Castle Court is a day school for girls and boys from the age of 2 to 13. Based in a wonderful rural location between Corfe Mullen and Wimborne, but within easy reach of all the local large conurbations. Richard Stevenson, the Headmaster, has one key theme that runs through all we do as a school: "we have one childhood: it has to be the best"
About the school
Castle Court School is based at Knoll Lane, Corfe Mullen, Wimborne, Dorset, BH21 3RF. It is formed of three units: Nursery (Badger Cubs and Badgers) and Reception; Years One and Two (Pre-Prep); and Years Three to Eight (Prep School).
The attractive rural setting which the school enjoys is within easy reach of Poole and Bournemouth, Wimborne, Blandford, Dorchester, Ringwood, Swanage and Wareham.
The school was founded in 1948 by Donald and Mary Scott, and moved from Parkstone to its present site on the edge of Corfe Mullen in 1968. Here the children have all the space they need around them: over 40 acres of playing fields, adventure playgrounds, woodland and gardens surround the school buildings. In 1973 the school became a Charitable Trust under a Board of Governors and has been a co-educational day school, providing continuity of education for boys and girls from 2 to 13, since the late 1970s.
The school has demonstrated its strength across the board: academically, in grammar school tests and scholarship exams; musically in widely acclaimed concerts and individual grade results; in sport by achieving county and national representation; as well as in Art, Drama and many other areas.
