  • Charles Darwin School celebrates excellent A level and GCSE results ​​​​​​​

    Charles Darwin School celebrates excellent A level and   GCSE results

    After an academic year full of disruption and uncertainty and an examination results period full of controversy it has been really good to see so many happy and smiling faces as our students have collected their examination results.

    My congratulations go to all our  Year 11 and 13, so many have achieved superb grades and can now look forward to the next stage either at university, in the sixth form or in the world of work and apprenticeship.

     There were some remarkable individual performances from students in both Year 11 and 13. I will congratulate these students via a website mention once the Covid complicated results distribution is complete -probably in the next couple of days.

    Well done!

  • YEAR 8 OPTIONS Process 2020

    Published 19/03/20

    In light of recent developments I am writing in regards to the Year 8 Options process and the steps now necessary to continue with this.

    Students currently in school

    If your son or daughter is still in school then could I ask that they return their forms to form tutors please as soon as possible.

    Students currently not in school

    There are 2 options for students that are currently not in school

    1. You can email me directly with your son/daughters’ option choices, in order of preference
    2. Alternatively you can return the form to school making sure it clearly states FAO: Mr Simpson – Options

    In all cases please could you make sure that the following is considered:

    • Write the option choices in order of preference (1 being the most preferred).
    • Give particular thought as to the reserve choices and the order in which they are given. Unfortunately although we do try to give students all 4 of their choices this is not possible and reserves will need to be used in a number of cases.
    • If there is any reason that you do not want your son/daughter to take up an option which has already been highlighted on the form can I ask that you as their parent/guardian write a short note to outline this, cross out the subject and write the new option in its place

    I can also assure you that I will not start the process of allocating options to students on a first come first served basis and will wait until the deadline for returns has happened (1st April).

    If you have any concerns or issues please do not hesitate in contacting me via email (

  • Charles Darwin Dancers' Success at Bromley School's Dance showcase

    Published 29/01/20

    On Monday 27th January Thrive Dance Company and our A Level dancers went to Langley Park Performing Arts Centre for a Bromley School’s Dance Showcase. This had been organised through collaboration between dance teachers in the borough and it was great to celebrate dance within the Bromley area. Here schools showcased dances from a range of areas such as exam pieces, extra-curricular work, Key Stage 3 pieces within the curriculum or students’ own work.


    Our girls were as professional as they always have been showing great discipline during the technical and dress runs whilst also being supportive of other schools. The quality of our dances were impressive and we received many compliments from other teachers and students: not only with the choreography of the dances but also the performance from our students. Thrive has taken on a number of new year 7’s this year and they are certainly helping keep the bar high!


    As always, another successful showcase of dance at Charles Darwin School, well done!
