uniformWelcome to The Joseph Whitaker School website.

The Joseph Whitaker School is an oversubscribed Academy that specialises in Sport and Performing Arts.

The school has a strong tradition of achievement both inside and outside of the classroom and we are very proud of the part that we play both within our local community and beyond. We are part of a strong family of schools that includes Abbey Gates Primary School, Blidworth Oaks Primary School, Heathlands Primary School, Lake View Primary School, Python Hill Primary School, and Ravenshead C of E Primary School.  In addition, a rising number of pupils come to us from Berry Hill Primary School, St Peters’ Primary School, Wynndale Primary School, and St. Michael’s C of E Primary School in Farnsfield as a result of  parental choice.

Our expectations of hard work, commitment, and achieving the highest standards of work and behaviour are absolute. All pupils are given every opportunity and encouragement to Be Outstanding and to reach their full potential in whatever they do.

We would encourage you to visit us at your convenience. You will see a school where pupils can achieve the highest high standards, underpinned by a caring, ordered and disciplined atmosphere; a school that values courtesy, self respect and respect for others; a school determined to see that the pupils of today become the valued adults of tomorrow.

With very best wishes
