Welcome to Whitmore High School

Sue HammondIt is my pleasure on behalf of the governors, staff and students to welcome you to the school.

Whitmore High School is a mixed comprehensive school with an excellent record of achievement. Students are expected to achieve the highest standards of work and behaviour in a positive, friendly but disciplined atmosphere. Our staff are highly qualified and passionate about ensuring all students reach their full potential and we work closely with parents to achieve this aim.

In our latest full OFSTED inspection we were delighted inspectors graded the school as Outstanding, a grade confirmed by OFSTED annually in their interim assessments. In the report inspectors commented on the “outstanding progress made by students”, our “ethos of support, care and mutual respect that helps every student feel safe and valued” and “the excellent arrangements made to support students new to the school … ensuring a smooth transition and successful start”. A full copy of the report is enclosed with this prospectus.

We care for our students as individuals; we stretch and challenge them to achieve their very best in all aspects of school life; we provide a wide range of extra-curricular activities and we support them to be happy, confident and successful.  We want all our students to have fond memories of their time here.

The school is popular and has been oversubscribed for many years. We have close and supportive links with our local primary schools, but are also pleased to welcome students from outside this cluster.

If you would like a personal interview and/or a visit to the school during a normal working day, we are happy to organise this. Please contact Mrs. Hartley, the school secretary, to make an appointment.

Headteacher

 ** Congratulations to all our 2015 GCSE students on their fantastic results.

  • 76 % of students achieved 5 or more A*-C grades including English and Maths – a school record. The national average for this is 55%
  • 92 % of students made expected progress or better in English from KS2 to KS4. The national average for this is 70%.
  • 87 % of students made expected progress or better in Maths from KS2 to KS4. The national average for this is 65%.

Note: These results are ‘best entry’.  The school has continued its successful policy of early entry for all students in GCSE English and Maths. However, only a student’s first entry to a GCSE examination counts in the DfE’s school performance tables.

** Well done to all our 2015 A Level students – 58% of all grades were A*-B and 85% were A*-C.
