Castell Alun High School is a well established and successful English medium co-educational school catering for over 1330 students. The school serves a large number of communities over a wide catchment area stretching from Dobshill near Hawarden in the North, to Llay in the South; and from Kinnerton near Chester in the East to Treuddyn in the West.
The campus is located in the pleasant village of Hope, Flintshire, three miles from the border with England and roughly equidistant between Chester and Wrexham.
This provides for a rich and balanced cultural mix of English and Welsh which is reflected in the ethos of the School. We maintain the highest expectations of all our students and endeavour to meet their intellectual, social and physical needs and assist them to be better equipped to adapt to the changing needs of society. We believe that effective learning cannot be conducted in isolation if it is to be of benefit to the student and society; hence our determination to seek out ways of enriching the quality of students’ learning experience by looking upon the wider community as a curriculum resource.
