About Charles Darwin School

Charles Darwin School is a highly successful co-educational comprehensive school for students aged 11-18. It is one of two schools operated by Charles Darwin Academy Trust; the other school is Biggin Hill Primary School. We are a "good" school (Ofsted 2018) with an ethos that encourages academic rigour, high expectations and a well disciplined approach to learning. The school is set in the heart of the green belt, on the edge of Biggin Hill, yet within easy travelling distance to London and is surrounded by open spaces. The school has extensive sports and community facilities including a flood lit 3G pitch. The school also runs the Darwin Leisure Centre which is located on the school site. At the heart of the school are its distinctive ethos and a shared vision which are supported by the staff, students, parents and governors. This ethos and vision have helped to create a very strong caring and cohesive community based on the enduring values of high achievement, friendship, respect and compassion for others. The school enjoys a low staff turnover and is able to attract and retain well qualified and committed staff. There is an excellent programme of support for both new and experienced staff.
