Weatherhead High School

Girls Comprehensive School

Weatherhead High School


Weatherhead is a large 11-18 over subscribed girls comprehensive school with 1,600 students on roll. There is a mixed Sixth Form of over 400 students.

“We aim to create a very supportive and caring environment where each student can have the self-confidence and belief to realise their ambitions.

It is my personal belief, that a happy student will achieve their potential, that is what Weatherhead is all about; happy students achieving success in the widest possible sense. We set high academic standards and succeed in ensuring that the school engenders values of respect, courtesy, consideration and tolerance.

We are very fortunate to have an outstanding, newly built school with some of the best facilities in the country. This website will only give a glimpse of the special opportunities we have on offer.

Prospective students and their parents are encouraged to make contact with the school and visit on one of our Open Evenings/ Days.”

Mr N Dyment Head teacher

Many of our new intake students are already very familiar with this School as a consequence of our outreach work with local primary schools. We organise induction days and curriculum visits to ensure students settle and start learning as soon as they arrive. Senior students help Year 7 settle in and find their way around the building. Parents are kept fully informed of progress and we also ensure that there is a Parents’ Evening in October of the first term to give an opportunity to discuss any issues of concern. Parents are encouraged to contact the school at any time if they need clarification or if they are concerned about their daughter. Also, as Headteacher, I provide the opportunity for open surgery events where parents are able, without appointment, to visit me at the school. These are well publicised in advance on our website.

Weatherhead Sixth Form is increasingly popular and successful. Last year 130 students secured places at universities throughout the country to read a wide range of subjects including Medicine, Mathematics and Psychology. The Sixth Form is one of the most successful in the North West and there are currently nearly 400 students studying over 30 different courses, both academic and vocational. Almost all our Year 7 students will, in the future, stay on in the Sixth Form and Weatherhead students have first priority in application for places at post-16 level.
