Weatherhead High School is an extremely successful school. In our OFSTED inspection, we were judged as outstanding in every category. The report noted that “students make outstanding progress whatever their starting point or circumstances and the standards they achieve are significantly above national averages”. In 2016 and 2017, the school achieved a positive P8 score, this year placing us in the top 18% of schools in the country and 8th for schools with a comparable intake. The school is oversubscribed on intake with a ten form entry each year at Year 7.
In 2014, Weatherhead became a Teaching School, and has been supporting neighbouring schools and Initial Teacher Training since. As part of the Peninsula Multi Academy Trust, Weatherhead is committed to a culture of excellence and we are looking for an individual who shares that ethos
