Headteacher Mike Whittingham

Welcome from the Head at Trentham

It is both a great privilege and a huge responsibility to provide our students with the best possible preparation for ultimate success in a rapidly evolving global society.

Academy life at Trentham is built around the needs of our students. I am determined that Trentham delivers an outstanding, innovative education where every child is respected as an individual. Through a ‘can do’ culture of success, we set the highest expectations for all our students with drive and determination for each individual.  Our ethos reflects the belief that excellence in educational achievement comes from developing the whole person.  At the core of our community are the values of respect, optimism, integrity and responsibility.

We have an outstanding team of staff who work tirelessly to challenge every child to Aspire, Endeavour and Achieve, which for our community means they should dream big, work hard and persevere to be successful. This is showcased by our many successes in the field of sport and the arts, as well as academic success.

We are a truly inclusive academy, that cares deeply about our community, so that students feel safe, happy, confident, inspired to learn and achieve academically.

We value the trust and respect that the local community have in our approach. We are committed to building strong partnerships to help support, sustain and develop that community to provide outstanding opportunities for all our students and parents so that their aspirations have no limits.

Trentham Academy is an exciting place to learn and explore, especially as we are an Apple academy where technology is used to stimulate education beyond the academy boundaries. I am sure when you visit our academy you will see why we are such a success.
