Dear students, parents, carers and staff,
We are delighted that The Whitehaven Academy is now part of the Bright Tribe network of academies and we are very excited to have begun our journey together to further improve the education of the students at the school.A brand new website will be rolled out in the next few weeks, along with a new online learning platform called E-tribe. E-tribe will integrate with the rest of the school’s management systems and enable students and parents to access homework, track progress and keep in touch with the school

A new curriculum will be introduced from September 2014 and the Bright Tribe education team is already working with the school to develop this.

We hope that you will see these changes – and others which will be rolled out during 2014 – as positive and exciting. Our intention is to build on the current strengths of the school and to continue to work with the school community to develop the highest quality of teaching and learning.

We value your opinions and views so, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact myself or the school. In the meantime, we will keep you updated via this website and regular communications.

Professor David Hopkins – Director of Education, Bright Tribe Trust
