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.


Our academy can host a range of facilities that give each student the freedom to take part in a host of sporting activities. We have a 3G pitch, tennis courts, netball courts, a gymnasium and ample field space for athletics, rounders and rugby. Football, Rugby, Rowing, Netball, Hockey, Athletics, Dance and Rounders, among others, are all part of the core sports that we provide within PE and Sport. 

Sport is an integral part of our curriculum and we always promote a healthy and active lifestyle. We actively encourage all students to become involved in extracurricular clubs and competitions, so they can perform at a higher standard or just enjoy themselves. Students will have the opportunity to part in many sports events throughout the year such as the DRET Winter, Spring and Summer Cups, 

The David Ross Education Trust takes pride in their involvement in sport at their academies. Their efforts to support and provide opportunity to all pupils on the sports field offer a step up for our students into the sporting world, and will allow the sport at Charles Read Academy to be enhanced.
