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 share 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.
Mrs Allen left the school as Principal in December 2015 after 11 years of leading the school. Mrs Allen says: “It has been a privilege to lead Whitley from a place of poor reputation to an Outstanding school today where students are included, perform well and have a great chance of success when they leave as young adults. I am proud of our school and community and feel very reassured that the transformational journey will continue under the new Principal Mr Rex, formerly Senior Vice Principal here.” Mrs Allen will continue to support the Teaching School as an N.L.E.
As the new Principal of Whitley Academy I am proud of our success. As a National Support School, we also work to support other schools on their improvement journey and have helped to improve many schools in the West Midlands
