We are a vibrant, successful six-year secondary school in the west of Inverness. We educate nearly 800 young people. With over 100 staff, including 60 teachers, we aim to provide all of our young people with a high quality education. We offer an extensive and engaging curriculum that leads to a diverse range of qualifications.

We work with an extensive and growing range of partners. Young people attending Charleston Academy have many opportunities to extend their developing skills and knowledge through a huge 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. 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.
