Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to The Costello School, with a history of excellence stretching back to 1908, we have been the choice of generations who seek strong academic success and excellent pastoral provision blended to ensure that we know each child, celebrate their uniqueness, and allow them a future filled with limitless potential.

We are proud of our dynamic learning community whose ethos is encapsulated by three simple words:

Enjoy, respect and achieve.

These thread through everything we do and allow us to deliver on our vision to create the ‘game changers’ of the future. We are conscious every day of the trust placed in us, and we are wildly ambitious for all our students, supporting them to become confident, resilient, and prepared to take their place in the world.

Here with us, you will find the perfect blend of being a large school and appreciating the facilities and resources that come with it, with the personalisation of getting the smallest details right – the bits which really make a difference. Whether our students aspire to Oxbridge, have creative or sporting talent, skills and a passion for vocational study or yearn to have new horizons opened every year by taking trips to Ghana, Europe, or completing Cadets or The Duke of Edinburgh awards, they all leave us ready to change the world.

Please do make an appointment to visit us in the school day when our students will be proud to show you around and you can see first-hand our hard working, well behaved and high achieving community.
