Welcome to Charlton School
Our vision is to 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. The first stage of this journey is through our transition programme which guides students and their families through the change from primary to secondary education.
We know that many children will already be familiar with Charlton and may have taken part in joint activities through our primary outreach programme. Others will have visited us to watch the school production or perhaps even performed themselves at our summer music festival ‘Charltonbury’. For some children and families, this time may well mark their first real contact with the school.
Whatever journey children have followed to date, we are confident that our committed team of staff, carefully crafted transition programme and pastoral support will enable students to settle quickly so that they can enjoy the best of what Charlton has to offer.
We look forward to continuing our journey with you.
We are proud to announce that of the Year 7 parents surveyed after transition 100% Would recommend Charlton to another parent.
We are committed to ensuring the very best provision for all our children and families. Parents should use the school website or contact key staff with any enquiries or concerns. We promote a listen and respond culture. If you have any concerns, please let us know. We appreciate that parents and children may be nervous at this time of change and are confident that our experienced staff will be there to support you throughout the transition process.
