We are now an Academy!

October 1, 2017

We are delighted to inform you that from the 1st October 2017, we are officially an academy and are now St Charles' Voluntary Catholic Academy, part of the St Cuthbert's Roman Catholic Academy Trust.

This is a really exciting and positive move for our school - we will form an integral part of the Government’s education policy to raise attainment for all children. We will now have the opportunity to benefit from the freedoms and flexibilities of academy status and to share best practice and work with others to bring about sustained improvements to all schools in our Trust Catholic family.

We are encouraging the children to work with other schools in the Catholic family to enrich their experiences and indeed recently, we attended the St Stephen's Reflection Day with St Thomas More children.

​We hope you will be as excited as we all are as the school moves forward to support our children.
