Welcome to The Charter School


About us

The Charter School is mixed, non selective comprehensive school located on the borders of Dulwich and Camberwell. It was founded 10 years ago after a campaign by local parents as there was no such state provision for secondary school age pupils. The main ethos of the school was to provide a school for all the community – that includes some of the leafiest parts of London as well as some of the most deprived housing estates in Europe. The lack of such a school before 2000 had a devastating effect on the local community. Families with secondary aged pupils either moved out of the area or their children had to travel miles to a school. As an example, the 90 Year 6 pupils leaving the local primary school in 1999 went to 50 different secondary schools!. Ten years on and the school is a beacon of success in the local community on a number of levels. It is classed as Outstanding by Ofsted, it is now a High Performing Specialist School amongst the top 20% in the country and it has two specialisms, science and business and enterprise.
