Our aim is to ensure each child develops into a responsible young adult with high self-esteem, excellent examination grades and the skills and competencies to equip them for success into the future.
As an independent school our expectations are high, attendance, punctuality, behaviour, uniform and attitude to learning should be excellent. In return Whitley Academy provides a safe stimulating environment with high quality teaching designed to ensure motived and effective learners.
As an RSA (Royal Society for the Arts) Academy we are proud to lead the family of academies, sharing their ethos of equality for all and social justice. We are an ‘Opening Minds training school and enable other schools to deliver high quality provision and gain accreditation.
Our track record of success in the last few years is impressive, excellent examination success and progress for our students with an Ofsted judgement for overall effectiveness of ‘Outstanding’ in September 2010 and 2013. We are recognised as a centre of excellence in our local community and have a growing reputation regionally and nationally for excellent outcomes.
As the Principal of Whitley Academy I am proud of our success and will continue to lead the school forward. As a National Leader of Education for 6 years, we also work to support other schools on their improvement journey.
I hope you find the website useful and enjoy learning about our school
