The Wellington College Academy Trust currently includes two schools. The Wellington Academy, a secondary school and state boarding school for students aged 11-18 and Wellington Primary Academy for pupils up to age 11, including The Nest Nursery and an Enterprise Company. The Trust is growing with Wellington Eagles Primary Academy and a 30-place Nursery opening. The Wellington Academy is expanding to allow for an increase in student numbers because of the rebasing of the Army to the UK from Germany.  

The Trust's core vision for the Tidworth and Ludgershall communities is:

  • To provide an outstanding holistic education
  • To raise aspiration of the children at its schools and, by extension, their families
  • To provide outstanding pathways to employment
  • To strengthen the community around its schools.

The successful candidate will be an innovative, reflective practitioner who can demonstrate the willingness to adapt and learn.  We are looking for an individual with high expectations and standards who can offer excellent behavioural management skills.
