The Charlton School is a Science College in Telford, Shropshire, England. It is consistently among the best performing comprehensive schools in the Telford & Wrekin Local Education Authority.

The Charlton is a successful[citation needed] secondary school in the Telford and Wrekin area. It has a wide range of subjects available to take for GCSE. The school is now part of a "Dothill-Charlton Federation", a collaboration with the neighbouring Dothill Primary school.


Founded in the 1960s, the school was originally an all girls school. The school's catchment area includes the small towns surrounding it like Wellington and Bratton.
