About Us

The Whitehaven Academy is a mixed 11 to 19 academy in Whitehaven in Cumbria. We are part of Bright Tribe Trust, a multi-academy trust set up to raise the standards of education across England.

Based on Cleator Moor Road in the heart of Whitehaven, we became an academy on 1st January 2014 to further support our vision to become an outstanding school and enable our pupils to realise their full potential and prepare them to become responsible and successful citizens.

Our staff are passionate and fully committed to providing the very best education for all of our students – every child matters to us, every lesson, every day.
