The Wellington Academy Vacancies

The Wellington Academy is a highly inclusive, innovative 21st century school, opened in 2009 to serve the Tidworth area of Wiltshire, which includes part of the military's new Salisbury Plain super garrison.

We seek to recruit dedicated and talented staff, highly committed to making a difference in the state system, in an area of significant need.
