Charleston Academy opened in 1978, built in spacious surroundings amid the beautiful backdrop of the Caledonian Canal, Bught Park and Torvean golf course. With thirty practical classrooms for delivering subjects like Art, Music, Technical, Home Economics, and Science, we also benefit from a refurbished hall/theatre, a modern canteen and assembly area.
All pupils in the school now have access to chromebooks to support their learning.
Our main teaching block has a further thirty classrooms, all equipped with computers. Most have smart boards and all have large windows allowing ample natural daylight.
As a former School of Ambition, extensive improvements to our playing fields have been undertaken in recent years. We have two state of the art Multi Use Games Areas (MUGAS), a floodlit, all-weather astro-turf pitch and large, extensive track and playing fields. Within our Community Centre our PE department has two gyms, a fitness suite and has full disabled access. Our Community Centre has a two meeting rooms, a large multi-purpose community venue and an excellent and well used cafe.
The school has plans in place for a major extension project through 2019-2022. This will involve the planning and construction of a large extension at the rear of the school.
