Castle View School, Canvey Island

12 November 2012

Castle View school
Social inclusion is at the heart of Castle View School's design. It has an airy, triple-height atrium as well as a café where pupils and staff can receive podcasts on their mobile devices via an online Learning Platform.

The school is designated a Specialist Science College and includes ‘super labs’ to encourage new ways of learning and approaches to the science curriculum.


The college also has a ‘Science Forum’, a learning zone that promotes group lessons and debates.

Externally, the school benefits from an ecological garden and sporting facilities.
