About Us

Thank you for your interest in our academy.

Whetley Academy is a larger than average school for children between 3 and 11 years, with places for up to 710 pupils. We are extremely proud to serve a diverse community with families from different ethnic backgrounds.

 

Since 1875 the school has provided the springboard from which generations of children have taken their first steps in learning. Our conversion from a community to academy school has been used as an opportunity to move us into a new and exciting stage of its development. Our academy sponsor is Delta Academies Trust (Delta). Support from the Delta is helping to accelerate school improvement and a recent Ofsted GOOD judgement in June 2014.

 

Exam results are improving year on year for all groups of pupils and attendance is now better than nationally for all groups. The school building is being transformed and modernised every year. The new build in Key Stage One is an example of how our beautiful old building can be updated to provide an outstanding environment for children, who love coming to school.

In short, we are very proud of our school and in welcoming your child, we welcome the whole family into Whetley Academy.

 

‘Pupils’ achievement, the quality of teaching and behavior and safety are all good and improving rapidly. This has been achieved through the collective efforts of: effective leadership and governance; capable staff; and pupils’ positive attitudes to learning.’ Ofsted June 2014
