Associate Headteacher's Welcome
We are very proud of our school and this site should give you an insight into what a wonderful place King Charles I School is to study and work.
We are proud of our academic ethos and the character development of teamwork, leadership, resilience and challenge that comes from teaching an academic curriculum and holding students to our high expectations. The achievement of our students is paramount but we also know all our students as individuals. We are unapologetically ambitious for every student, no matter what their background, prior attainment or needs. We take great pride in developing relationships between students, staff and families, in order that we can ensure that success is desirable, demanded and achievable. This striving for success is exemplified in our ambition of ‘supporting successful futures’. Our core aim is to help students achieve their best and so access university or a high-powered alternative.
We complement our academic curriculum with an extensive enrichment programme. From after school clubs to international trips, we give our students access to the cultural literacy to enable them to fully participate in adult educated life. We operate with a strict approach to discipline ensuring our students develop the habits that will be necessary to be successful independent adults. Our students are therefore a credit to us and we are very proud of their example. They are able to learn in calm, purposeful classrooms.
At King Charles I School the culture is that we care about our school, we respect others and we do our best and we expect our students to:
- work hard and do their school work to the best of their ability;
- get involved in all that the school has to offer both in and out of the classroom;
- attend school punctually, every day and in full school uniform; and
- show respect and courtesy to those around them and to our school.
Our students are smart, purposeful and courteous. They work with commitment in all aspects of school life. They are supported by a dedicated team of staff who expect the most from them.
I hope that this website provides you with a flavour of life at King Charles I School. If you wish for any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
