School Vision

Building Knowledge. Developing Character. Inspiring Futures.

Our mission 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.

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 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.

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.

Wellington is a busy market town, rapidly improving facilities and new housing being built nearby the school.  From its central position, Wellington is easily reached by 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!

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.
