Whitley Academy – A place to “be the best you can be”.
Please explore our website - www.whitleyacademy.com - to gain a flavour of what it means to be part of the Whitley Academy community. We sincerely hope that you will be inspired to apply to join us.
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 we are proud to deliver an excellent all round education to our students.
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 motivated 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.
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.
