Our Mission Statement:

We accept the mission of share, learn and love to our fullest potential.

General information:

St. Charles’ Voluntary Catholic Academy has served the local community on the present site since 1968 although records date back to 1890s. The school serves a diverse community across the city and is the Parish School for St. Charles’ Borromeo and West Hull parishes: many of our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents are former pupils.

It is our aim to support each pupil as they develop and thrive; educationally, socially, emotionally, physically and spiritually so that we fulfil our mission. We are firmly committed to becoming an outstanding school within the Diocese of Middlesbrough, working in partnership with each child’s family, since we believe that the family is a child’s first teacher.

The school follows the National Curriculum and we are really excited to have worked hard on developing our 'St Charles Curriculum' to deliver the best learning opportunities and experiences to our children.  You will find more information about our curriculum in the 'Curriculum' tab on the right which includes links to our Long Term Plans. Further details of your child's year group expectations are available at parent consultation evenings or by asking their class teacher.

We work closely with our local schools, the Family of Catholic Schools in Hull, our Local Authority and with our Diocese so that we can make the best use of the resources we have.

Through our links with St Mary's College, we offer a wide range of sporting opportunities for all children at all levels of participation and our staff have the opportunity to work with specialist sports staff to deliver high quality PE lessons.  We routinely offer a wide range of out-of-hours clubs such as netball, football, badminton, hockey, street-dance and cheer-leading. We also make good use of make good use of St Marys' College's music expertise to deliver curriculum music lessons as well as instrument lessons, including, guitar, violin and percussion. 

We take our responsibility for formation very seriously and work closely with our Diocese and parishes to support the spiritual development of the children in our care; we welcome families of all faiths and families of no organised faith. We follow the Religious Education programme agreed by the Bishops of England and Wales for Catholic Schools – Come and See and play an active role in Parish life at St Charles Borromeo Church in Jarratt Street.

We welcome visits to our school and will be happy to arrange visits via our school office. Please contact us if you would like more information. I hope you find our website informative.
