On the 1st December The Charter School was recognised as a World Class School and was awarded the World Class Schools Quality Mark. We are delighted to be the first school in Southwark to received this prestigious accreditation.
We are one of 17 schools to gain the accreditation this year, bringing the total number of World Class Schools in the UK currently to 43.
The Quality Mark is one that cannot be applied for: schools who have two consecutive Ofsted Outstanding judgements and whose results are consistently above national average are invited to submit an application to be considered for the accreditation.
Rigorous staged pupil-led processes had to be completed, from an initial 12-page audit and collation of evidence against exacting criteria, to the production of a 15-minute video, attendance at an all-day accreditation assessment working as a team with 2 other schools from outside of London Throughout the lengthy and exacting process our student ambassadors were a true credit to the school. They fully reflected The Charter Way and our school values, as they problem-solved, overcame challenges and produced their final design products to a very tight final 5-hour deadline.
The Award Ceremony on Thursday 01 December was hosted by Mr David Blaine of Cambridge University. We were delighted to hear that The Charter School Ambassadors had successfully passed all aspects of the accreditation and have earned the school World Class School status.
Our sincere thanks and enormous congratulations go to our six World Class Schools Ambassadors who are collectively responsible for our accreditation:
- Y9 : Umar Kamara and Aurora Hacker
- Y11 : Nadim Guerziz and Rosa Beuzeval
- Y13 : Louiza Charalambous and Temi Gordons
