Whitley Bay High School

Whitley Bay High School has a very distinctive ethos built on strong positive relationships and the desire to help students develop a love of learning and become curious and happy learners with high self-esteem. Helping students develop into confident, sensitive and reflective adults is a key priority at Whitley Bay High School. This is achieved through outstanding teaching and careful support for all students throughout their time in school. We regard students as individuals, all different but all equal, with varying strengths and interests. We are proud of the academic and extra-curricular successes our students achieve and are determined to help students fulfil their potential while making the most of the wealth of opportunities on offer at the school. 

We work closely in partnership with parents and believe this relationship is crucial to the success of our students. Friendliness and a willingness to listen are at the heart of all that we do and through this strong collaboration students thrive. 

The school prides itself on the quality of our teaching and learning and received national recognition for our innovative approach and expertise when we were selected as one of first 100 Teaching Schools in the country, with a special responsibility to lead training on outstanding teaching across the region. We were also named as a National Support School because of the outstanding quality of our teaching and exam success. 

After being named by the government as one of the top 100 highest performing schools in the country, we again achieved outstanding success in 2019 at GCSE. Over 80% of all Whitley Bay High School students achieved the new 9 – 4 grades in both English and Maths. 88% of students achieved 9 – 4 grades in English and 88% in maths. This makes Whitley Bay High School the highest perform school in North Tyneside and one of the highest in the country for student attainment and progress. What is particularly pleasing is students of all abilities achieved excellent grades that far exceeded national predictions. Over 80% of all grades across all subjects were 9 – 4 or A* – C. Our Sixth Form is nationally recognised and our A Level results in 2019 were again outstanding. 58% of all grades were either A*, A or B and 99.2% of all grades were A* – E. The average A level grade was a B. This places the Sixth Form as the highest performing in North Tyneside and one of the highest in the country. 

We are obviously proud of the Ofsted report and these results, however, what is more important to us is the real sense of pride our students have in this school and the wonderful atmosphere that exists as you walk around the site during a typical school day. 

We are a large school, which brings many benefits, such as a very broad curriculum allowing students to choose from the widest selection of subjects, and we can offer a huge array of extra-curricular opportunities. However, very importantly, we manage to maintain a small school community atmosphere where students feel valued and supported from the moment they join us to the day they leave.
