The academy is a non-selective, co-educational school with a Church of England ethos. It admitted its first cohort of Year 7 students in September 2009, taking over from the predecessor school, St Luke’s C of E School.
Charter Academy promotes the highest aspirations, motivation and achievement for all its students and a very positive culture and ethos has been established since its opening. The local police have commented that crime in the area has dropped significantly since Charter Academy opened many local primary schools are now encouraging students' first choices to be Charter Academy.
Over the coming years Charter Academy will benefit from a multi-million pound modernisation programme. We are working with architects to secure the best possible design that will provide a practical building to meet our educational requirements.
Students who enjoy a healthy diet and life style will be more attentive and find learning less stressful. Our award winning chef, Trigger Rogers, was the BBC Radio 4, Food and Farming Award winner of 'Dinner-man of the Year' in 2007 and his tasty, healthy menu is a winner with Charter students at our Blue Café. Chair of the School Food Trust, Prue Leith, recently visited the school to find out how Trigger had won pupils over to healthy eating. We work closely with the School's Food Trust ensuring that our students benefit from a healthy school lunch.
School trips are a great opportunity to learn outside the classroom in new, interesting and practical ways. They form an integral part of a Charter Academy and we want each student to experience at least one trip per year.
Experiencing something in real life on a school trip that students have learnt about in the classroom helps it make much more sense. Examples of the trips that we run at Charter Academy to experience learning in action include:
