About Charlton School
“Building Knowledge. Developing Character. Inspiring Futures”
Charlton is a successful and popular 11-16 comprehensive school. 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 are a truly comprehensive school, admitting children from over 20 primary schools, with students’ prior attainment at KS2 broadly in line with National Average, with a slight bias towards higher ability range.
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. Our curriculum is broad, rich, and matched to individuals’ needs.
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 aim for all our students to enjoy school, excel in their studies, and attain outstanding outcomes.
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.
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.
Pastoral care. We ensure that every member of our school community knows that we are committed to supporting their physical health, safety and emotional wellbeing.
Behaviour. Relationships between staff and students are based on our core values: respect, responsibility and resilience. Clearly stated standards of behaviour are to be upheld by all.
Belonging. We celebrate our differences and show respect for our community. Students understand and develop their role as active and responsible citizens and are equipped with the skills to challenge discrimination.

Co-Curriculum. Our curriculum is enhanced by a wide range of sustained enrichment opportunities, enabling students to discover and nurture their individual talents and interests.
Facilities. Our new building provides a clean, bright, safe and stimulating learning environment with state-of-the-art equipment.
Celebrating success. We celebrate success at all levels. Students are encouraged to apply a growth mindset to both their academic and personal progress.
Partnership. We have well established links with our local community and view partnerships with the Learning Community Trust, wider community partners and our families as central to our success.
Our ethos is built around three core values: Respect, Responsibility and Resilience. We expect all members of the Charlton community to exhibit these values at all times.
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.
We are tremendously proud of our new school building. Our new build school opened in June 2016 and provides first rate facilities, which are purpose-built for learning in the 21st century. Additional investment in state-of-the-art ICT, Sports, Expressive Arts, Science and Technology equipment have been a great boost to curriculum areas. We firmly believe that the facilities strengthen engagement across the school and give students relevant learning experiences, preparing them for their next steps in education.
Charlton School converted to become an academy in December 2018 and is part of the Learning Community Trust. We believe the Learning Community Trust to be an ideal partner for us, as we have a similar vision and values for providing the highest quality of education for the community in this part of Telford.
The curriculum is organised into nine curriculum areas with colleagues working collaboratively to support the complete learning experience. We currently implement a two-year KS3 programme, followed by a three-year KS4 where students make their option choices at the end of Year 8 in most areas.
Within curriculum areas, our teams consider the views of learners using student self-evaluation as part of their assessment procedures. This gives learners the opportunity for reflection and to improve good practice. Students are encouraged to share their views and opinions and play a key role in shaping the future of our school. Students take tremendous pride in what they do and have a sense of loyalty with good relationships with staff.
We are fully committed to a policy of inclusion and we aim to integrate all students fully into the life of the school. To this end we acknowledge the fact that all teachers are teachers of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities and our ethos is one of helping both staff and students to thrive in an inclusive environment. All children admitted to the school, including those with disabilities, have access to the full curriculum offered by the school.
As a school we have a wide range of extra-curricular activities supported through our partnership work with many outside agencies. This, linked with our work to promote community cohesion, provides our young people with every opportunity to meet their potential. Our curriculum is enhanced by a wide range of sustained enrichment opportunities, enabling students to discover and nurture their individual talents and interests. Students apply a growth mindset to both their academic and personal progress and we celebrate success at all levels.
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. 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 into our school community.
Mr Andrew McNaughton
