"At Carter Community School, we strive to bring out the best in all of our students, with a continued focus on high standards of courtesy, respect and above all, academic achievement.
As a school at the heart of its community, we work closely with parents and carers to ensure that all our students are dedicated to learning and develop the character necessary to take advantage of the opportunities provided. We support and challenge all of our students to fulfill their true potential, building their capacity for life-long learning.
Our staff support students at each stage of their development to ensure that no child is left behind and our goal is that every student leaves us with the best qualifications possible, ready to be good citizens and leaders in their community.
During their time with us, we help our students to experience, understand and appreciate a broad range of subjects and activities including art, music, dance, theatre and culture, which will enrich the whole of their lives. Our acclaimed Carter Pledge also helps them to understand themselves, their relationships with others and to become more resilient, well rounded and caring individuals.
As part of United Learning, we also have access to excellent educational resources and the expertise to help provide exceptional opportunities for students and staff.
We want every student to strive to achieve the very best they can as we, with the ongoing support of parents and our community, continue on our journey towards becoming a great school."
