We hold an Open Evening every year during the Autumn Term so that prospective parents and students can sample Castle Rock’s unique atmosphere and surroundings, and meet our staff and current students.

If you can’t make it to the Open Evening or if your child might be joining us midway through the academic year, we welcome visits to the school at any time. Please call us to arrange an appointment.

Every parent must apply for a place for their child – applications are made online at the Leicestershire County Council website.  The site will take applications for either Early Years admissions, Mid-Term transfers or admissions for transition from primary to secondary schools.  

For more information about the application process, contact the Admissions Team at County Hall on 0116 3056684 or by email
