The Wellington Academy has been open since 2009, is a part of the Wellington College family of schools and is proud of its aspirational and inclusive education provision. The school offers a curriculum that is enriching and innovative, giving students the opportunity to develop their leadership skills and foster a strong sense of charity and community service. Through their enrichment programme students unearth talents, pursue passions and develop a strong sense of self belief and value.
With strong links to the army, a high percentage of forces children and large boarding houses means that Wellington students are diverse and culturally rich. The school has a strong house system and links with community groups which is often displayed explicitly at their numerous charity events, house competitions and annual creative arts and sports festival.
Sending your child to the Wellington Academy is more than sending them to a school it is more like joining a family.
The Wellington Academy’s vision is simple: “the academy is a happy community where everyone is valued and respects each other. We achieve well, believe in ourselves and have limitless aspirations. We are determined to make this vision statement more than just words in ensuring it permeates through every vein of our school”.
