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.
We are not solely defined by our military links, but share a proud history with our academy sponsor: Wellington College, which was founded in memory of The Duke of Wellington, and helped develop our fabulous £32million campus. Our buildings were improved yet again this year with another brand new state of the art teaching block that opened in September. This complements our boarding house (100 students) and other facilities, ranging from theatre to radio station to CCF rifle range, which provide a superbly rich work and learning environment.
The Wellington Academy shares close links with our partnered primary schools, one of which is currently housed within our secondary academy site, and boasts a growing sixth form making an almost through-school feel.
We are proud of our curriculum breadth at The Wellington Academy and aim to expose students to the widest range of subjects possible. Our students 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.
Academic improvement is top of the agenda: we have a fresh and dedicated leadership team who are fully committed to improving outcomes for our students. Our teachers are committed to doing their very best; our loyal students deserve the best. Consequently, The Wellington Academy is a place where you can work in superb modern surroundings, make a real difference to students and see your career develop. We value CPD and provide fertile ground for new ideas that contribute to our aims.
Are you an ambitious and dynamic Teacher of Politics and Law? We are looking to appoint an innovative teacher, who is passionate about their subject and who will encourage students of all abilities to succeed.
