This is an exciting time to join Whitworth Community High School. We currently have 657 students on role. At Easter 2023 we moved into our new school building which offers fantastic facilities, benefits from photovoltaic panels and a ‘green roof’ and is one of the first net carbon zero school building projects undertaken by the DfE in the pilot of their Rebuilding Schools Programme.

In March 2023 we were delighted that our Ofsted inspection team recognised that we continue to be a securely good school - a judgement about which we were entirely confident and proud.

We have a relentless drive to embed a culture of high aspirations and expectations throughout the school, and we offer a caring environment where students learn well, make very good progress, feel listened to and are safe. We are full and oversubscribed in each year group and parents/carers, staff and student voice is very positive. The Governing Board are knowledgeable and supportive and we are in a healthy financial position.

Students succeed academically and make strong progress at Whitworth Community High School. In 2023, our P8 score was +0.23 and Attainment 8 was 49.1.
