Our aim at Whitburn Academy is to provide all our pupils with an education that will equip them to live in the adult world of work, leisure, personal relationships and family life.  Each pupil would be given the opportunity to develop the skills required by this adult world, and for many of them there will also be an emphasis on acquiring the qualifications necessary for further education or entry to particular occupations.

We feel that the atmosphere in school is very important in helping to achieve these aims.  We encourage a spirit of co-operation and tolerance, hard work and self-reliance, believing these qualities important as young people grow up and enter adult society.   We recognise the crucial role played by parents in creating such an atmosphere and seek at all times to maintain effective communication with them.


In providing this caring environment within the school, we would present our aims in the following form:

1.   Appreciation of Learning

2.   Respect and Caring for Self

3.   Respect and Caring for Others

4.   Sense of Belonging

5.   Social Responsibility
