An environment where education thrives

At Carleton, we understand that having the right facilities can be the difference between a good education and an outstanding one.  Alongside bright and spacious classrooms, inspirational learning walls and modern buildings we have a whole host of excellent facilities to support our students to become the best they can be.


The Library is the place where our students can find the resources they need to support their academic study and is also a quiet environment where they may enjoy recreational reading. Our librarian is always on hand to offer advice, help students find the books they need and issue them for home study. The Library also houses a computer suite with facilities for accessing the internet, printing and photocopying and is used by students for both project work and daily homework.  It remains open after school until 4.00pm

Sports Facilities

Our outstanding sporting facilities include netball and tennis courts and provision for rounders and athletics.  The gym and sports hall house activities such as gymnastics, trampolining, basketball, hockey and dance.  Whilst rugby and football players benefit from the extensive fields within the school grounds. Our state of the art gym is regularly used in PE to encourage an active and healthy lifestyle.

Performing Arts Facilities

Our music department enjoys superb facilities including four practice rooms, a recording studio and two well-resourced teaching classroom. This includes a whole host of musical instruments such as guitars, ukuleles, pianos, drum kits, keyboards, the list goes on!

The performing arts Theatre rivals that of the West Yorkshire Playhouse. It provides an excellent multi-functional and flexible performance space for theatrical productions and musical events, with seating for up to 500 guests. Theatrical and musical productions are enhanced by excellent sound equipment and professional lighting facilities, operated from a purpose built state of the art technical studio.

Our dance studio is fully mirrored so our budding dancers can fully immerse themselves in their craft.
