    “Life has many ways of testing a person’s will” – Paul Coelo. This quote is the best way to describe my journey from primary to secondary school. From a young anxious child I have become a confident teenager over the last two years at Charles Darwin School. The support I have had so far from the school has been incredible. This has helped me achieve Platinum effort since year 7, Jack Petchey award nomination and plenty of certificates of achievement. The school is fantastic and I always give 100% effort.

  • Year 9


    This year I received the Certificate of Excellence for Drama. I have been Platinum effort throughout year 9 and have had 100% attendance. I have been in the majority of school productions and a Student Voice representative. School is fun but also a serious place to learn. The school has really helped me to develop confidence.

  • Year 13


    I am currently studying Mathmatics, English, History and performing arts at A Level after achieving 2A*, 4A and 3 B grades at GCSE. I am hoping to channel these skills and qualifications that I have acquired at Charles Darwin School into pursuing a career in Law. I have been lucky enough to win Jack Petchy for my contribution to the school, excellent behaviour and have taken part in dance competitions, show and have taken an active role in the Duke of Edinburgh expedition scheme.

    I am really proud to be part of Charles Darwin School. In year 8 I have been nominated as Student Voice representative and I am in the rugby team. The most important thing I have achieved is perseverance and resilience. The school is a friendly place to be and learning in class is excellent.

  • Year 10


    Charles Darwin School has given me a wealth of opportunities and opened up my way of thinking, as well as pushing me in the top set with challenging lessons in subjects like English, Maths and Science. I am really enjoying the experiences that I have taken part in. I’ve made great friends here and am excited about the GCSE and A Level challenges ahead.

    I am a member of the School Council and Student Voice. Charles Darwin School is an amazing place to be. They have given me so many opportunities and boosted my confidence so much! Discipline and education is of a very high standard.

  • Year 9


    I take part in several clubs including Geography club, book club and the choir. I participate in the netball team and am a librarian. The teachers are all really passionate about their subject and this shows in lessons, which makes them more fun. This is especially true for Maths. I am really happy here and have found some great friends.
