Headteacher Mike Whittingham

Welcome from the Headteacher at Trentham

It is both a great privilege and a huge honour to be the Head teacher at Trentham Academy. At Trentham we live by our motto of “Aspire, Endeavour and Achieve” – dream big, work hard and persevere to be successful. I am determined that Trentham delivers an education that reflects our values of respect, optimism, integrity and responsibility. This ethos is grounded in care, a warm friendly atmosphere and a relentless pursuit of excellence for all. In order to achieve this we have the highest expectations of ourselves, as well as for our young people.

Every child at Trentham Academy is respected as an individual and we promote a ‘can do’ culture to ensure that our young people achieve great things whether through academic success or the field of sports and the arts. Trentham Academy is an exciting place to learn and we ensure that our young people have access to a broad curriculum offer and a plethora of enrichment activities. Daily, I am reminded how blessed the Academy is to have extremely talented and dedicated staff that always go above and beyond for our young people to ignite their minds, touch their hearts and develop their talents and skills.

We also have an exciting wider curriculum that covers a multitude of topics including for example careers, safeguarding, British values and links to further education, apprenticeships and local businesses. As a leading Apple Academy we use technology to stimulate education and enhance the skills of our young people to meet our evolving global society. The depth of our curriculum offer ensures that our young people are happy, confident, inspired to learn and therefore secure places with further education providers (including local sixth form colleges and Russell group universities), apprenticeships or employment.

We pride ourselves in being committed to ensuring that the Academy’s community is at the heart of everything we do. We are very privileged to have wonderful, creative and committed students and enjoy excellent relationships between staff, students and parents/carers and our local community. This ensures that we continue to build a vibrant, successful and happy school.

Trentham Academy is a popular first choice with parents and we are over-subscribed. If you would like to arrange a visit to our wonderful Academy please contact our reception on 01782 883200. You will receive a warm welcome and I am sure that you will see why we are such a success.
