Whickham School is a safe and happy community where students can learn and develop as they grow into successful young adults. Everyone is valued for their unique contribution to the life of the school. We celebrate diversity and recognise the special gifts, talents and needs of each individual as we all strive to be the best we can be. We seek to cultivate good citizens – mature young people who care for others and have a desire to give back to the community which has nurtured them. For more information see our Charity Week Page, and our World Challenge Page
We pride ourselves in being a true community resource, at the heart of the community we serve and for the benefit of the whole community. Following the opening of our new school we are excited to share our new facilities offering outstanding sporting, conferencing and classroom facilities with free on-site parking.

We work hard to maintain our excellent links with parents and the community, and we are constantly looking for ways of enhancing these. We have strong relationships with employers, universities, pastoral/support agencies and our partner primary schools, and work with a number of outside organisations on partnership projects and our Alumni programme aims to build a network of past pupils, and former staff members.
