Successes in our Eco Schools work have included: a vegetable garden with produce passed on to our school kitchen, recycling of mobile phones and printer cartridges, Eco Days, reduction in all of our energy consumption, helping the Gedling Climate Group to enhance biodiversity in a local cemetery and… a once in a life time achievement of winning a city wide competition to ask the Dalai Lama (spiritual leader of Tibet) an environmentally based question when he visited Nottingham’s capital FM Arena back in 2008.

What is the Carlton Cabinet?

A School Council is group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school.

Every year in September, each class elects two representatives to represent them in the School Council. Our School Council gives children the opportunity to make all their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.


The Carlton Junior Academy’s Choir was first established in 2008 and have performed in a range of local and regional concerts. We use the range of harmonies in the Choir to perform a range of diverse vocal performances, from a range of genres and time periods.

We have also participated in three hugely successful Gedling Schools’ Music Festivals in July when five schools join together for Gedling’s Got the ‘X’factor – we were even winners in 2014! These concerts also include a massed pupil’s choir.

Previously, we have been invited to perform at a concert at Albert Hall, as well as at local schools. We also enjoy sharing our passion with our local community, by performing at Care Homes and other local events.

At Christmas, the choir sang with Mr Vernon Coaker M.P. to record  his Christmas Message.

Sport Outside of School

Many of our children take part in sports and physical activities outside of school and their achievements are celebrated in school times.  Several of our children excel at gymnastics and dance, having won competitions individually and as part of a group.  We have several children that compete in swimming competitions outside of school. Many children play for local football teams and one child has taken part in regional trampolining competitions!

I am keen to find out more about what sports children take part in out of school.  Please email if your child competes for a sports club or team out of school.
