Charlton School

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Charlton School.

Charlton is a successful and popular 11-16 comprehensive school in Telford. We are well established and respected in our local community, with a consistent record of high standards. This is attributed to good examination results and acknowledges our caring and supportive values-based culture. We aim for all our students to enjoy school, excel in their studies and attain outstanding outcomes.

As Principal, I have a deep rooted passion for education and firmly believe that teaching is the most rewarding and important vocation there is. Through our work, we are able to inspire young people and shape the future for the next generation. At Charlton, we take pride in students’ progress. We nurture happy, healthy young people, who have the knowledge, academic achievement, and strength of character to lead safe and successful lives in modern Britain, preparing them for their next steps in education or employment, with a thirst for lifelong learning.

We are committed to delivering a broad, balanced and knowledge rich curriculum, enabling students to achieve their best and ensuring they are well equipped for the future. 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.

We see each student as an individual and encourage them to build their unique character through our personal development programme. Our curriculum is enhanced by a wide range of sustained enrichment opportunities, enabling students to discover and nurture their talents and interests, which enrich their educational experience and inspire them to find activities that they will continue to engage with for life.

Students are guided by our strong pastoral system, with experienced staff who support their learning. All students have Form Tutors who serve as mentors to track their academic and personal progress. Heads of Year and Pastoral Managers offer further leadership, coaching and support and, as required, access the services of external agencies. We ensure that every member of our school community knows that we are committed to supporting their physical health, safety and emotional wellbeing.

We wish for Charlton students to be seen both in school and by the wider community as mature, confident, responsible citizens, who wear their uniform with pride. As a school, we celebrate diversity and have well established links with our local community. We view partnerships with feeder schools, community partners and families as central to our success.

We look forward to welcoming you to our school community.

Mr Andrew McNaughton

Principal
