The Wellington Academy has been open since 2009 and is proud of its aspirational and inclusive educational offer. 2015 and 2016 were our best and second best results ever for both GCSE and 6th Form. In addition, our 2016 Ofsted report is further evidence that it has never been a better time to send your child to the school. However, so much more is possible with our fantastic young people and we are not afraid of pushing the bar even higher for them over the coming years.
The Academy’s location means that service families are a significant element of our catchment and we are proud to be the key point of military/civilian integration in the area. However, we are not solely defined by this and we are proud of our commitment to serving all elements of the community, including the most vulnerable, and our recent track record of success in this regard.
Our vision for education has been inspired by our sponsor, Wellington College, in that we believe in a strong extra-curricular and pastoral provision to complement academic excellence. We are very fortunate to have recruited talented and well qualified staff who provide both high expectations in the classroom and the pastoral care that allows our students to flourish. Students are encouraged to participate in a rich programme of activities such as our Combined Cadet Force, strong sports teams and vibrant arts enrichment. For our boarding students in particular, such activities continue in the evening and over the weekend and we are very proud of the international and social mix that is able to call the Academy their home from home.
Our facilities and resources are second to none in the area. Come to see us for your self - you will be impressed with what we have to offer and will leave inspired by our vision.
