The Charles Dickens School is a state, co-educational school with a strong reputation and a caring and supportive ethos. We are dedicated to enabling all students to achieve their full potential and we pride ourselves on being a supportive, innovative and inclusive school community.  We joined the small, but highly ambitious, Barton Court Academy Trust (BCAT) in March 2017 consisting of three secondary schools: Barton Court Grammar School (BCGS) the Lead School; The Charles Dickens School (CDS) and Barton Manor School, a free school which is a 5 form entry 11-18 non-selective school with a joint Sixth Form with BCGS. Barton Manor School is co-sited to BCGS and work on developing its multi-million-pound site has just started with a view to this opening within the next 2 years.  The Trust is committed to excellence in professional development and CDS benefits from outstanding leadership and the sharing of best practice with BCGS.
