About The Academy

Headteacher Welcome

Our vision for pupils of The Wellington Academy is to produce young adults who are ambitious, inquisitive and independent. Armed with these personality traits they will then be positioned perfectly to become effective and contributing members of the local, national and global community.

Ascend Learning Trust is based around ‘excellence’ and our guiding principle is to drive towards this both academically and personally for each and every learner.

We celebrate effort and achievement equally but realise students will need to try, try and try again to master all aspects of their learning along the way. At The Wellington Academy we value effort (as without this success will not follow), expect failure to be needed as a result of efforts and that to overcome these failures, personal resilience will need to be developed. We know that these skills take time to develop and our taught and sub curriculum have explicit themes to develop these as a pupil moves through the academy.

All staff will work hard with young people and families to ensure that The Wellington Academy community is strong and embeds the school within the local communities it serves. We aim to be the first and only choice of school for all local families through positive relationships and endeavor to always reach excellence.
