Today, the 1st April, sees the successful and eagerly awaited transfer of The Wellington Academy to The Royal Wootten Bassett Academy Trust. As part of this transfer we welcome Mr Steven Paddock as our new Headteacher at the Wellington Academy. As a staff team we are all very excited to join this highly successful trust and are delighted to have Steven join the team. We relish the opportunities that the transfer will bring our students, staff, parents and the community.
Mr Rob Wood, who has so very ably led us all since January, now returns to the key post of Senior Deputy Headteacher – we would all like to thank him for his work during these challenging times. As a staff team we look forward to working with Steven in what will prove to be the next pivotal chapter in the school’s history, while we continue to be supported by Wellington College in particular avenues.
