Open Event 2018


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

At Charlton School it is our aim to provide an environment in which all students can succeed. To achieve this aim, we expect all of our school community, staff, students and visitors to show our three core values of Respect, Responsibility and Resilience in all that we do.

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 outside of lessons, to enrich their experience and inspire them to find activities they will continue to engage with for life.

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 are tremendously proud of our new school building, which opened in June 2016.  It provides first rate facilities, purpose-built for the 21st century.  Additional investment in state-of-the-art ICT, Sports, Expressive Arts, Science and Technology, have been a great boost to students’ already rich curriculum offer. We are now seeing the impact the new facilities are having in further strengthening our high performance across the school.

We would be delighted for you to visit us at Charlton and see how our team can make a positive difference to your child’s learning and development.  Learning is at the heart of all we do, and we look forward to sharing our values and vision with you as promoted by our whole school community.
