Rated OFSTED Good

Full Time, Permanent
Job Share or Part-time will be considered

The Wellington Academy opened in 2009 to serve Tidworth, Ludgershall, and the surrounding area: an area with a significant military presence. Consequently, we are proud to educate a large number of children from service families and with the growing super-garrison based on Salisbury plain we expect our numbers to continue to rise.

The Wellington Academy joined the Royal Wootton Bassett Academy Trust on 1st April 2020 and are following their approach to teaching which has seen them gain an outstanding rating by Ofsted. By joining the Trust, it brings a whole wealth of exciting CPD opportunities which is your right to undertake as a teacher as you develop in your career.

Our curriculum breadth is focused on ensuring every pupil is exposed to the widest range of subjects possible to equip them to leave school ready to achieve their dreams and fulfil their goals. Our vision for all our pupils is that they become Inquisitive, Ambitions and Independent young adults and when they leave us, they will have the skills, knowledge and character they need to take them on to University or the work place.

Our pupils are friendly and happy and value good relationships with their teachers. In a recent survey over 96% said they would recommend The Wellington Academy to a friend: a simply magnificent figure.

Come and see our modern campus and Boarding House where teaching space and the technology to teach are second to none.
