About Whitworth Community High School

This scheme involves the construction of a new 2 to 3 storey high school in the existing school field of Whitworth community high school. The school will cater for up to 750 pupils and is due to allow teachers and pupils to change from their existing school into the new school over the Christmas break in 2022. Phase 2 of the scheme involves the demolition of the existing school and the construction of car parks and sports pitches. Overall completion is due summer 2023.


During October 2021 this scheme will be in its first few weeks and the site activities being carried out will be shaping the existing ground to correct levels and taking surplus soil to tip. There will also be some drainage diversions being carried out.

Information on Open Doors 2022 will be released shortly
