School Environment Council Leader

At Whitley we pride ourselves on the excellent working environment made available to our staff and students. However, it is something we are always looking to improve upon. The School Environment leader is a key part of this, both working hard with students across the school to help maintain the standard on the working environment and also look for ways to make it better.

"Achievement in the small sixth form is good and results are improving. By the end of the sixth form, results are at least in line with, and some above, national average for most subjects. Results are typically stronger in vocational subjects. The school’s predictions for all post-16 courses, based on accurate assessments of how well students are doing, show that sixth form students are on track to chieve much improved results in 2014." - Ofsted Quote 2013
