At Whitelands Academy, we are building a truly exceptional staff to deliver a comprehensive, diverse, and detailed curriculum. The staff will consist of a core group and leadership team that establishes a high standard of teaching in essential core subjects. They will be supplemented by expert staff from other schools within The White Horse Federation.

This structure gives us the best of both worlds: strong leadership that drives attainment in crucial subjects and expert teachers who strive for excellence in more specialist subjects. This approach means we are able to ensure consistent focus across our broad curriculum while utilising the support and expertise of The White Horse Federation.
