Year 6 Open Evenings 2021

It was wonderful to welcome you all to our in-person Whickham School Open Evenings. These events were for parents, carers and pupils who are currently in Year 6 and will therefore start secondary education in September 2022.

The purpose of the evenings was to provide you with information about our school, ask questions of key staff and see our school.

All the events have now concluded, however if you were unable to attend you may find the information below useful.


Headteacher’s Welcome



Year 7 Unscripted

We believe that the most important views of our school are those of our students.  Here’s what the current Year 7 have had to say about starting School at Whickham


Further Information

A useful document for all prospective parents and carers is our prospectus. You should have been provided a copy of this by your child’s primary school but if this has not been the case please contact us to be posted a copy or alternatively you can view this on our school Admissions Page
