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.
We are, with funding from the DfE, have started work on our new school build which will be ready by the Summer of 2023. This is an exciting time for the school and the community as this new school will provide state of the art facilities for our students and our community.
Key milestones in the school’s development have included the award of Leading Edge Status in 2003, one of the first 100 schools nationally to achieve this status, and the successful bid for Specialist College Status, which took effect from September 2006. The bid focused on the core subjects – English, Maths and Science, in order to impact on every student in the school. Greater curricular choice, more enterprise and more vocational opportunities came with the status, as well as new initiatives with our partner schools and local community. We aim to produce ‘gifted all-rounders’ who have high levels of literacy, numeracy, oracy and ICT.
More recently the school became one of the country’s first Teaching Schools and is a National Support School. Both of these accolades emphasise our role at the forefront of research and practice in Teaching and Learning, and bring significant responsibilities for outreach work, training teachers at every stage from ITT to prospective Headship and leading CPD programmes across the North East.
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.
