About Us

Welcome to our website! We hope that you enjoy reading about our academy and keeping up to date with all the latest news.

At Charles Read Academy we aim to provide each one of our students with the care and support to excel both inside and outside the classroom. Our close family community means we can give each student the level of encouragement they need to achieve results at the best of their ability.


Our academy has three core values. These are:






All of our students must abide by these values at all times. We want them to feel a strong sense of pride for their school and its community.


We are proud to be leading education providers for the community we serve.  Our academy combines the highest standards of teaching with impressive new facilities, including state of the art science laboratories, a dedicated music suite and a brand new 3G sports pitch.


At Charles Read we understand that every student needs a strong academic foundation to achieve the highest standards. As well as the core subjects; Maths, English, Science and Information Technology, we teach a varied and broad curriculum. We hope this will encourage all children to find their passion within education.


We want every student to be the very best they can be, and a credit to themselves and their community.


Since joining the David Ross Education Trust in 2013, our ability to do this has further strengthened.  We are proud that we are able to offer our students unrivalled enrichment and sporting opportunities, building confidence and shaping aspirations in all our young people.
