We are delighted that we have been able to ensure that our academic tutorials have taken place using video appointments. I hope you have found these extremely valuable and are happy with the start your daughter is making at Whalley Range.

I wanted to ensure that in these challenging times we continue to work with our parents and carers to support students with their home learning and in addition some of the systems we use at Whalley Range. We have put together a set of resources to help you support your daughter with her learning out of school.

Please take the time to go through these resources with your daughter and should you have any questions, please contact your daughter’s Year Team or Mr Mycock, Assistant Headteacher directly (

If you have any further questions during the evening please contact us via and a member of staff will be contact you to support you with your query.
