Whitley Academy – A place to “be the best you can be”. A genuine welcome to our website.
Whitley Academy is an innovative and inclusive school, committed to delivering high quality education for the community it serves. We value everyone that we work with, regardless of their differing needs, abilities and backgrounds. This ethos influences all that happens within the school – our mantra of ‘deeds not words’ supports all students to be the best they can be.


We received an "Outstanding" Ofsted judgement in December 2013 for the second time and are proud to deliver an excellent all round education to our students.
