Welfare & Counselling

At Castle School there are members of staff available to help make sure that your time spent in the UK is both useful and fun. You can discuss your course with your teachers, the Director of Studies or a member of the Management Team.

Castle School can provide the following upon request:

  • Letters to help you get a bank account in the UK
  • Letters to give to employers
  • References for employers, landlords, estate agents and universities etc
  • a free student card, which is useful for identification and some student discounts
  • free help and advice with registering with a doctor or dentist
  • An emergency telephone number
  • Listen to any problems you want to tell us about and try to help you


If you need urgent assistance outside of school hours, Castle School offers a 24-hour emergency telephone number providing help and assistance at all times.


Support for Under 18s

Castle School has a responsibility to provide a safe & healthy learning environment for all students and staff but especially for students under the age of 18 and vulnerable adults.

Castle School will help to keep children and young people safe by contributing to providing a safe environment for children and young people to learn, identifying children and young people who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm, and taking appropriate action with the aim of making sure they are kept safe.

However, it is important that you understand that we cannot supervise under 18s at all times during their stay. A consent form must be signed and this will acknowledge that under 18s have a degree of freedom and autonomy and will not be supervised outside class, organised activities and at weekends. Under 18 students will also be expected to travel to school independently and consent from a parent or guardian will also be required for this.

Castle School is committed to ensuring and promoting the safeguarding of learners who are involved in courses or activities which come under the responsibility of the school. Should you require further details or clarification before booking an under 18 student on a course at Castle School please contact the school directly for further information.

Please note the Children Act 1989 defines a child as a person under 18 years of age.
