The English Baccalaureate is achieved if students gain a GCSE grade C or above in all of the following:
Students at Whitley Academy have the opportunity to study the courses required at GCSE from Year 9 onwards.
We have also maintained the provision of subjects outside the ‘Ebacc’ (Art, Business, ICT, PE, Catering and Graphics) at Key Stage 4, so our students have a broad choice.
"I really like this school because of all the extra support that the teachers give you."
In December 2013 an OFSTED inspection judged that, "“teachers have high expectations of students and develop excellent working relationships in the classroom”. ".
