Headteacher's Welcome

Our Vision


The St Charles' way is to ensure all pupils love to learn, build resilience, become independent learners and for every child to be ambitious in what they can achieve. At St Charles’ we ensure our pupils receive an enriched and challenging curriculum which develops the whole child- spiritually, academically, socially, morally, physically and culturally. In striving for excellence, pupils are encouraged to fufil their God-given potential.

Our Mission Statement

The St Charles' way is for every child to:' Belong, Believe and Blossom'


We live our school's mission in the following ways:

We belong when....

Pupils belong to the community and parents describe our school as having a 'warm and friendly' feel. Our sense of community is strong and there has been a St Charles' in Hadfield since 1858. Many parents and grandparents are past pupils of the school. Children are happy and feel safe in our school.

We believe...…….

Pupils achieve and we have a ‘I can do' culture in our school. We believe in our pupils and they are taught to believe in themselves and to achieve.

We blossom when......

At Charles' school we have a dedicated, committed and highly qualified team of staff who deliver high quality teaching which allows our pupils to blossom and flourish.
