Our school


Charter Academy is part of the Ark network of schools, one of the largest and most successful multi-academy trusts in the country. Ark is renowned for its approach to staff development, with high quality training provided at every level for both teaching and non-teaching staff.

Since becoming an Ark school, Charter’s outcomes have improved, and the quality of provision has enabled pupils to leave the academy far better prepared for the future. The academy’s most recent Ofsted inspection judged its overall effectiveness to be good. The school’s buildings are modern and fit-for-purpose and a new block has been added as the school moves from four to six forms of entry. Pupil numbers are strong, and the school has a dedicated and ambitious team of staff.
