Welcome to Charleston Academy Website,
As you will see from our Aims, we are committed to developing our provision for all young people and committed to sharing our improving facilities with the wider community. The Charleston Campus is a resource for all. Both the development of school/community provision and the development of the website are ‘works in progress' and we would welcome comment on additional content readers would find useful .In the meantime, I trust the following pages provide an informative insight into the practices and policies of our school and community facilities.
Calum MacSween, Rector



At Charleston Academy we will encourage students to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. To achieve this we will promote:

Achievement and Attainment by

providing opportunities for all students to achieve;

• emphasising the importance of the key skills of literacy and numeracy;

• supporting all students to achieve their full potential in national exams.

A Framework for Learning by

supporting staff to develop their skills;

• creating an environment conducive to effective learning and teaching;

• fostering self-discipline in students.

Inclusion and Equalities by

ensuring equality of provision for all students;

• developing strategies to meet individual learning needs;

• providing learning opportunities for all members of the community.

Values and Citizenship by

working with parents/carers on an individual basis and via Parent Forum and Parent Council;

• helping students develop self-respect and respect for others;

• encouraging students to acknowledge their inter-dependence on each other and on other members of their neighbourhood and society;

• teaching the duties and responsibilities of citizenship in a democratic society.

Learning for Life by

equipping students with the basic skills and attitudes to succeed in a rapidly changing world;

• encouraging creativity and ambition;

• promoting a healthy lifestyle;

• ensuring the wider community has maximum access to all the facilities on campus.

In so doing, we believe we can all make an effective contribution to the communities we serve while equipping our students to be successful contributors to 21st century society as a whole.
