Thank you for taking the time to look at our website to find out what Whetley Academy has to offer.

We work very hard to build strong, supportive links with parents in the belief that positive partnerships between home and school benefit our children. The ethos of the school is respect, tolerance, kindness and being the best we can be. We expect our children to work hard, co-operate, look after each other and achieve highly in everything they do! Above all, we want every child to enjoy school and be able to thrive in as many ways as possible. Please enjoy reading our website and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind Regards,
Mrs D Brown
