“Castleton is a tough school to teach in with some very challenging pupils but Rebecca’s thorough, calm and enthusiastic approach produces an excellent teaching environment.  Rebecca’s relationship with parents, children and staff is excellent and she has become an invaluable asset to the school.  I wish her every success and will find her very difficult to replace.”
