Charlton is a very successful 11-16 Academy located in the market town of Wellington, Telford. We were very fortunate to move into our new school building in June 2016, the last school built under the governments Building Schools for the Future programme. We are a member of the Learning Community Trust (LCT), a multi-academy trust that serves the education needs of students in primary, secondary and special schools in Telford and Shropshire. We work in partnership with the LCT towards a shared vision that places students’ learning, environments, and local communities at the centre of our approach. Wellington is a busy market town, with excellent facilities in the local community and new housing being built nearby the school. From its central position, Wellington is easily reached by road or rail and has a large train station in the town. It is close to Shrewsbury and the famous Ironbridge, which is an area of local beauty and historical interest and one of the best in Shropshire! 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. Our vision is built around three core values: Respect, Responsibility and Resilience. We expect all members of the Charlton community to always exhibit these values. Underpinning our vision and values are our shared character virtues: • Gratitude: feeling and expressing thanks. • Compassion: exhibiting care and concern for others. • Humility: estimating oneself within reasonable limits. • Justice: acting with fairness towards others by honouring rights and responsibilities. • Courage: acting with bravery in fearful situations. • Integrity: having strong moral principles and standing up for what you believe in. • Honesty: being truthful and sincere.
