Tree Depicting the Eight Aptitudes

Wellington Academy opened in 2009 to serve Tidworth, Ludgershall and surrounding villages – a unique rural area within the growing ‘super-garrison’ for the army on Salisbury Plain. We have the highest number of service families of any secondary school nationally and play a major role in delivering the new cross-government military covenant. Wellington College, our sponsor, is the only independent school to have given its name to an academy. The College is also a Teaching School.
