We are a vibrant, inclusive and successful six-year secondary school in the west of Inverness. We educate some 750 young people from a diverse catchment. With nearly 100 staff, including 52 teachers, we aim to provide all of our young people with a high quality education by offering an extensive and engaging curriculum leading to a diverse range of qualifications.

We work with an extensive and growing range of partners. Our young people have many opportunities to extend their developing skills and knowledge through a range of interesting and challenging activities beyond the classroom. We are working towards Accredited International School Status through our work with our partner school in Botswana. We are an accredited School of Football and location of the award winning Albert Roux Kitchen.

Most importantly though, we have a relaxed and welcoming ethos built on our core values of Respect, Responsibility and Achievement. There is a strong sense of shared responsibility amongst pupils and staff and we have an active and engaged Parent Council. The quality of the education and experiences we offer our young people means we are held in high regard by parents and our wider community. Welcome to Charleston Academy.
