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.

Charles Read Academy in the top 3% for Sport nationally

For the second year in a row Charles Read Academy has been in the top 100 state sport schools by School Sport Magazine putting us in the top 3% of school nationally. 

Based on 19 different sports and more than 120 different national competitions, more weighting is given to success in a range of sports rather than single sports as well as competitions with more teams competing - with all results inputted into a special computer programme. 

This due to the hard work of our students competing in national competitions in table-tennis, which included a national title in the U16 Girls team category and U13 Boys individual competition, Football and Cross Country.

Team U16 Girls National Champions
Individual U13 Boys National Champions
3 x Individual Table Tennis National Finalists
 ESFA National Small Schools Cup – Year 10 (3rd Round)
ESFA National Small Schools Cup – Year 8 (3rd Round)
 Cross Country –  regional schools round 

We would like to congratulate the hard work of our students and their dedication and support of their parents, coaches and teachers who have allowed them to reach this high standard and outstanding level of success.
