Dear Parents and Carers,
As you may well have read in the local press and social media, Lancashire CC confirmed the decision to close Thomas Whitham Sixth Form from 31st August 2020.
Whilst we are gratified that the announcement made clear reference to the high standards of achievement and student care that we have been so proud of, we are extremely disappointed that we did not get the chance to tell you, our students and families, of the decision before the news was released to the press. We believe that this community deserved better, and I will be raising this matter with the relevant leadership at Lancashire County Council.
In the meantime, I would like to express our sincere thanks for the many expressions of praise and support we have received over this difficult consultation period. Please be assured that despite all of the logistical problems caused by the coronavirus lockdown, we will continue to do our very best to ensure that each and every one of our students receives
every support to fulfil their potential, and to move smoothly to the next phase – university, the world of work or another local college.
Thank you for your on-going support.
