I am delighted to be the Headteacher of The Whitby High School, a school that has been at the heart of Ellesmere Port for over fifty years and a school recently judged outstanding by Ofsted in our delivery of PSHCE. We are justifiably proud of our reputation within the community, a reputation built around a forward thinking ethos and long standing tradition.
This important combination underpins a dynamic and ambitious environment that supports each individual to achieve his or her potential. We are a large school with approximately 1600 students including a large inclusive Sixth Form and we ensure the very best opportunities are available to them through a flexible, relevant curriculum that was judged outstanding by Ofsted. In addition, each student’s pastoral care is organised around a supportive, well-established House system, which was judged as outstanding in our last full inspection. The many facets of these fundamental areas are working together to support and nurture all students to success.
Life at The Whitby High School is about more than examination results. The school prides itself on the wide range of activities available to enrich the lives or our school community. Extra-curricular activities feature highly in the development of our students across all areas of the school. Sporting activities, music and drama productions, educational visits, foreign excursions, Duke of Edinburgh awards expeditions, charity fund raising activities and extend the experiences of our students at every stage of their education.
Our aims are encompassed within the word PACE, in that we PREPARE students for future; support all to ACHIEVE their best, CARE for themselves, others and their environment and ENJOY education and all the joy it can bring. Prepare, Achieve, Care and Enjoy the route by which all students succeed. We believe in hard work in pursuit of the highest possible academic, personal and moral standards that allow our young people to develop into independent, caring individuals with lively, enquiring minds. The Whitby High School offers an excellent opportunity for your child to flourish regardless of their ability, ethnicity or gender.
