“Expect, Believe, Achieve”
Our school seeks to retain the wonderful tradition and heritage of Charles Dickens whilst embracing the modern technological world today. Dickens himself was forward thinking and entrepreneurial. He also inspires us by his dedication to his craft. He knew the importance of hard work and endeavour as the key to success and developing talents. This can inspire our pupils today, everyone can work hard and be their very best.
We believe in traditional values such as hard work, integrity and respect, along with tolerance, diversity and inclusion. We want our pupils to have rich experiences that make them aspire for the very best careers and access to Higher Education and training.
We are very proud of our school community. Parents, staff and governors work tirelessly to support our pupils to excel so that when they leave us they are confident, successful and fulfilled young people ready to meet the challenges of a world that is rapidly changing.
Our students require not only an excellent foundation of learning, but also the acquisition of habits of flexible thinking and learning, resilience and confidence in solving problems both as individuals and within a team.
To be a pupil of The Charles Dickens School is to be special, we have some of the best facilities and teaching resources in the local area and we are part of the Barton Court Academy Trust. There has never been a better time for your son or daughter to join The Charles Dickens School as we aim to ensure your child enjoys their education and leaves us as a confident, successful and happy young adult.
