We are delighted that you have chosen to join us for the next stage of your child’s education and can't wait to meet all of our new students in the next academic year.
EXCEPTIONAL EXPERIENCES. SUCCESSFUL LIVES.
Sir Thomas Wharton Academy is a rapidly improving Secondary school of over 1000 students with a thriving and growing collaborative Post 16 provision. We are now oversubscribed in Year 7 for the third year running. We pride ourselves on the aspirational, supportive and caring community. We are very fortunate to be housed in a new building with state-of-the-art facilities. We look forward to your child contributing to long-standing traditions such as the House System, charity work and the completion of PLEDGES as part of our rewards system. Our dedicated staff and students will be on hand to ensure that your child feels welcome and receives the best pastoral and academic support and challenge throughout their time here, whilst enjoying other enjoyable experiences that Secondary School brings.
We are passionate about delivering excellence every hour of every day and in providing support that challenges our young people to achieve. We support all our students in their pursuit of success and happiness. We firmly believe that young people and staff should demonstrate a relentless commitment to our six key drivers:
The relationships we form with the community and parents are extremely important to us and essential to the success of our students. The basis of these relationships is formed on trust and communication, and therefore I encourage regular communication between yourselves and the Academy.
We are dedicated to educating our students and developing the whole child by cultivating their character. We believe this is incredibly important to enable them to have a choice of future progression pathways, so they can be the very best they can be and to enable them to positively contribute to society. Therefore, we place an emphasis on Character Education, including regular participation in extracurricular activities and attending events and trips which broaden students’ horizons.
We are really looking forward to working with you, and we know your child will thrive here at Sir Thomas Wharton Academy.
