Whickham School has always enjoyed a good reputation in the local community. Exam results are excellent and Ofsted reports consistently describe us as 'good with outstanding features'. However,current self evaluation identifies the school as outstanding. Parents when surveyed comment that the staff really care for the children they teach; former students look back with fond memories.
The EFA, the government body who fund the building of new schools, announced on May 7th that Miller Construction are the company who will build the new Longbenton Community College! Work will starttowards the end of 2014 for the new school to open 18 months later.
In May, the year 12 BTEC Engineering students were given the opportunity to head down the road to look around the Siemens Power Generation Factory. This trip gave the students a rare insight into themassive scale of some of the mechanical engineering works we have on our door step, right here in Walker. It will hopefully inspire them to consider Engineering as an option for further study or a career path. We'd like to thank Siemens for allowing us to visit.
