Charles Read Academy

We seek to broaden the horizons of each and everyone of our students encouraging academic excellence and transferable life skills enabling all to become effective members of our 21st century society.

COVID-19 Info

Staying connected and having a sense of belonging is so important at all times but particularly vital during a pandemic. Whilst the school is closed to the majority of students, we will do everything we can to keep the community active and excited about their learning and having a sense of belonging through the various activities and opportunities we share. 

During lockdown, we continue to operate a full assembly programme to help our students to self regulate and get ready for their day of learning, to pass on important messages, to help continue to deliver our PSHCE programme and to ensure our students remain connected to our 3 houses as well as our 1 community.


Our assembly schedule is as follows:


Monday - Whole School Assembly

Tuesday - Year 11 Assembly (fortnightly)

Wednesday - House Assembly

Friday - House Assembly

We are continuing our careers programme remotely, with Year 11 individual career interviews taking place via Teams and a series of webinars for a range of year groups, some which are shared in lesson time where pertinent to a particular topic and others that students opt into due to their personal interest.

We will keep this page updated as and when there are any further developments. We hope you are keeping safe and well.
