Welcome to Charles Read Academy
Charles Read Academy is situated in the village of Corby Glen in Lincolnshire. We offer a high quality education to students aged 11 - 16.
At Charles Read Academy we are committed to delivering the very best education for 11-16 year olds in our local area. Since joining the David Ross Education Trust we have worked hard to invest in the academy’s facilities, increase academic standards, and enrich the learning offer for our students.
As a small academy, we pride ourselves on helping students to achieve their academic potential, while developing their interests and talents in a caring and stimulating environment.
Last year 53% of students achieved 5 or more A*- C GCSE grades including English and maths. This represents a 21% rise in the last three years and is strong evidence of our improving academic standards, driven by our high expectations and aspirations.
With the support of the Trust, we have recently installed a brand new 3G All-Weather Sports Pitch and opened fantastic new science laboratories, art rooms and a state of the art music suite, transforming the learning environment for our students.
Wherever students’ talents lie, we encourage them to aim high and we do everything we can to support them. This includes exclusive enrichment opportunities, scholarships and bursaries so that they can pursue their creative and sporting talents.
We are proud to be at the heart of our local community, and regularly work with primary schools in the local area, running programmes throughout the year to ease the transition to secondary school.
