Headteacher, Miss Whelan commented:

“I am absolutely delighted with the achievement of all our students who have worked extremely well during their GCSE and BTEC courses in the most challenging circumstances ever. The students have worked very hard since starting at Weatherhead 5 years ago to achieve such success in all subjects, despite their education being disrupted by a global pandemic in Year 8 and the staff at Weatherhead have worked tirelessly to support them and deserve a special thank you. All our parents and carers have been so supportive and the strong partnership we have has been integral to the success of all our students.

I am so proud of the students’ success and most students are returning in September to continue their studies in our Sixth Form.  I wish all students the very best in their new ventures.”

Chair of Governors, Mrs Carol Rogers congratulates all Year 11 students on their deserved success and thanks all the staff for their professionalism, hard work and support over the years.
