Edale CE Primary School

Information for prospective parents

After being put into 'special measures' by Ofsted in February 2017, the governors appointed a new headteacher Mrs Lees, who has consistently led Castleton School to 'good' ratings to date. She, the governors and staff have gone further than just addressing the issues raised in the inspection. Ofsted were really complementary about the progress and changes made during their recent visit this October and have confirmed that we are on track to be back to 'good' by July 2018.


The school really is now a vibrant, forward thinking and unique place for children to be. We will be growing in size and strength year on year from now and we'd love to welcome you and your child to become a part of this.


Edale is easier to get to than you think. Just 15 minutes from Chapel-en-le-Frith and connected to Hope, Whaley Bridge and Chinley by the railway it's actually not difficult to get to us at all.


Please come and look around our school to see what a fabulous start it gives the children here.
