Whitley Bay High School
Whitley Bay High School is a mixed 13-18 comprehensive school. The school has grown considerably in size over the last decade, and is oversubscribed each year. Currently the roll is 1749, with 633 in the Sixth Form. There are 179 members of staff, 113 Teaching and 66 Support staff.
We moved into our new school in September 2023 which has been built on the same site as the old school. This has provided Whitley Bay High School with state-of-the-art facilities for our students, staff and the wider community.
The School benefits from a very committed and forward-looking Governing Body, and Governors take a keen interest (and usually are involved) in staff appointments. Much of the work of the Governing Body is done in its three Committees, and staff and students are often invited to meetings to make their views known.
In conclusion, Whitley Bay High School has an outstanding reputation both in the North East and nationally. The school prides itself on positive relationships and its relaxed but purposeful atmosphere. It is in the middle of exciting and extensive continuing development, and new appointments will have an important part to play in this.Visit School Website
