Charlton School

Charlton is a successful and popular 11-16 comprehensive school. We are well established and respected in our local community, with a consistent record of high standards. This is attributable to good examination results and acknowledges our caring and supportive environment, combining formality with good relationships between adults and students.

As Principal, I have a deep rooted passion for education and firmly believe that teaching is one of the most rewarding and important vocations. No other job allows you to touch the lives of so many, inspire a generation and shape the future for young people.

With the job of Principal comes great responsibility; it is my aim to provide the best possible education for all students at Charlton. To provide the students not only with the academic results needed for progression but also the personal, interpersonal and life skills to enable them to be successful in the future.

At Charlton we are committed to providing an exciting, broad curriculum, supported through a full range of wider curricular opportunities that allow students to realise their full academic, physical and social potential. Our curriculum plans for the needs of all learners, as they progress through their five years in our care, providing opportunities for enrichment to develop wider aspects of learning and personal development.

We wish for Charlton students to be seen both in school and by the wider community as mature, confident young people that wear the uniform with pride; who are responsible citizens, with a thirst for learning. We are looking for the students to engage fully in the vast amount of opportunities available to them, to enrich their experience and inspire them to find activities they will continue to engage with for life.

Students are guided via our strong pastoral system, with experienced staff who support their learning. All students have Form Tutors who serve as academic mentors to track their progress. Senior Tutors and Pastoral Managers offer further support, as required, accessing the services of external agencies and family support.
