Welcome to Christopher Whitehead Language College
Thank you for your interest in our fantastic school.
This is a school where we value all our students and believe that, with our support all students can and do achieve excellence in their education.
Christopher Whitehead is a school where our students’ behaviour
and attendance have continued to be recognised as exemplary.
These are key performance indicators that tell you our students feel happy, safe and ready to learn. Then, with the correct curriculum pathway, they will achieve the best qualifications and develop the best skills for further education and a successful career.
I believe this is a happy, vibrant school that offers life-changing experiences, with twenty-four after school clubs and in-school experiences, allowing academic, sporting, dramatic and artistic development to the highest standards.
Our successful application for an academic, school based sixth form opening in September 2015 will, I believe, ensure staff and students can further develop exciting curriculum areas that can only enrich our already thriving school. This is a challenge I, and the Senior Leadership Team, relish.
Sixth Form : Headteacher’s Perspective
The Sixth Form at Christopher Whitehead Language College is an exciting, new institution which combines the flexibility and independence of a sixth form college with the added support and unique opportunities associated with a school sixth form. It is our ambition to support students to become outstanding citizens, produce high quality A Level work, achieve academic success and ultimately fulfil their future aspirations.
At Christopher Whitehead Sixth Form we are able to offer students a contemporary, purpose built sixth form centre and a broad A Level curriculum delivered by a team of highly qualified teachers. Whilst developing their independence and study skills, students will benefit from the outstanding pastoral support that is synonymous with Christopher Whitehead Language College. Expert UCAS support and guidance for Oxbridge students will be delivered in conjunction with our partner school, Haybridge Sixth Form, a leading institution in the field of post-16 education in the West Midlands.
We recognise that sixth form is about more than just A Level courses, therefore, alongside our range of A Level courses we offer an array of enrichment opportunities to broaden and enhance students’ experiences. Our enrichment programme will include the Extended Project Qualification, Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award, sports, career specific work experience, whole school leadership roles and university master classes.
I hope that you will be able to visit us and talk to staff and students about the sixth form. I look forward to welcoming you to Christopher Whitehead Sixth Form.
