The Whitehaven Academy (TWA) is an 11-18 mixed Academy. The main principle of admission to TWA is to provide a welcoming, safe and supportive learning environment that meets the needs of young persons within the 11-18 age range, who live in Whitehaven and the surrounding area.

We will endeavour to provide places for students who wish to attend TWA provided they can be accommodated within the scope of the admissions policy (see below).

TWA participates in the Local Authority co-ordinated scheme.
