Welcome to the Carlton Academy

Dear Parents

I would like to warmly welcome you to The Carlton Academy’s website.

The Carlton Academy opened as an academy on 1 September 2011, sponsored by Redhill Academy Trust.  As principal of the Redhill Academy for the past ten years I strongly believe that successful schools have four key characteristics;

  • High expectations of all students
  • Valuing and celebrating academic achievement
  • Consistently good and focused teaching
  • Widening students’ experiences through a range of extracurricular activities including sports, music and the performing arts.

Over the next few weeks, everyone will be working hard to help ensure all students taking exams this summer are prepared and ready to succeed. Well done to everyone who took part in the Gedling Youth Council elections before Easter – every student in school voted and we are delighted that we were able to elect three students to represent their peers in our local area.
