The Community College Bishop’s Castle is an 11-16 school. It serves a sparsely populated part of South Shropshire and draws its students from a wide geographical area including many from Wales. The Community College stands at the heart of the community and is co-located with a Sports, Arts and Community Centre (the SpArC) that provides great benefit to ourselves and our partner primary schools and more widely to all residents in our catchment area.
