Together with our staff, Governors and our wider community in Wellington, we are working to provide the very best education for our children, both academically and pastorally. Our students’ achievements include performing at the highest levels in Sport and the Arts, developing wider skills via the National Citizenship Service and Duke of Edinburgh Awards, competing in national challenges in Maths and Science, to name just a few.

Our aim is for every child to achieve, belong and participate and this is at the heart of everything we do at Court Fields School. We believe in the absolute moral responsibility we have for equipping students with the best possible exam results. We know that this opens doors for students and prepares them with outstanding attitudes and a strong moral foundation.

We are ambitious for our students and our school. We have high standards and our students reflect our expectations. Our improvement, particularly over the last eighteen months, has been noted by our students, staff, parents, community and Ofsted. Visitors to our school recognise a significant shift in culture, with a clarity of purpose and focus on high quality teaching, excellent behaviour and wellbeing . We will be relentless in ensuring that this progress continues.
