Weatherfield High

Weatherfield High School (formerly Weatherfield Comprehensive) is the main institution for secondary education in Weatherfield. The school specialises in the 11-16 age group, although some pupils have sat their A-level examinations, which would suggest that the school has Sixth (VI) Form facilities. Lucille Hewitt was the first pupil to sit her O-Level examinations at the newly formed Weatherfield Comprehensive in 1965. The school was created by the amalgamation of the Weatherfield School for Girls' and the Weatherfield Boys' School.

The school rarely featured until Ken Barlow returned to teaching in 1991, taking a post in the English department. By this time, Tracy Barlow was a pupil at the school, along with Steve and Andy McDonald and Nick Tilsley. Derek Wilton worked as a caretaker at the school for a period in 1992. Since 2004, references to "Weatherfield Comprehensive" ceased and the school was started to be known as "Weatherfield High". In 2004, Violet Wilson was identified as a former pupil of Ken Barlow and sometimes still referred to him as "sir". Sophie Webster, Chesney Battersby-Brown, Sian Powers and Ben Richardson all left the school after taking their exams in Year 11.

Scenes at Weatherfield High School are filmed on location at Oasis Academy MediaCityUK in Salford, formerly Hope High School.
