About Whickham School

Whickham School educates over 1500 students and has one of the largest sixth forms in Gateshead with around 300 students housed in a recently built dedicated centre. Our recent Ofsted report recognized how well behaved and eager to learn our students are, and we constantly strive to ensure that we maintain the high standards that they deserve. Where students are cared for and provided with an excellent curriculum, they are much more likely to succeed. We want all of our students to learn in a happy and caring environment so that they are able to develop all their talents to the full. Whilst there is a strong emphasis on academic achievement, all students are encouraged to take part in a very wide range of extracurricular activities.
