The sixth form opened in September 2006, as part of the first wave of a nationwide 10 to 15-year programme of capital investment funded by the Department for Education and Skills called Building Schools for the Future..
For the first two years of its existence, under the temporary name of Burnley Schools' Sixth Form, it occupied the site of the former Barden High School, before moving into new premises in September 2008, on an adjacent site. It is named after Thomas Whitham VC who served during World War I. It was judged "good with outstanding features" in an inspection by Ofsted in 2011.
