KCA and WSMWelcome from the Executive Headteacher and Headteacher

A very warm welcome to The Charles Dickens School website.  I am sure that you will find it informative and enjoyable to explore. We hope that this website will give you an insight into the high quality of education you can expect your son/daughter to receive at The Charles Dickens School.

We are very proud of our school community. Parents, staff and governors work tirelessly to support our pupils to excel so that when they leave us they are confident, successful and fulfilled young people ready to meet the challenges of a world that is rapidly changing.

Our students require not only an excellent foundation of learning, but also the acquisition of habits of flexible thinking and learning, resilience and confidence in solving problems both as individuals and within a team.

To be a pupil of The Charles Dickens School is to be special, we have some of the best facilities and teaching resources in the local area and we are part of the Barton Court Academy Trust.  The Trust’s lead school Barton Court Grammar School is an Ofsted “Outstanding” rated co-educational Grammar school.

There has never been a better time for your son or daughter to join The Charles Dickens School and we look forward to working together to ensure your child enjoys their education and leaves us as a confident, successful and happy young adult.

When you visit us, I hope you will appreciate not only the courtesy and confidence of the students, but also their joy and enthusiasm.

We look forward to meeting you.
