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. Recently graded 'Good' by OFSTED, the Wellington Academy has transformed itself over the past three years into a high performing school.

Our staff charter underlines our belief that all students can achieve, be happy and have limitless aspirations and our job as professionals is to ensure this happens. All our staff sign up to these aspirations and play a full role in contributing to this vision through inclusive teaching. We seek to recruit dedicated and talented staff, highly committed to making a difference in the state system, in an area of significant need.

OFSTED noted that: 'The quality of school leadership has improved since the previous inspection. As a result, expectations of what pupils can achieve are higher. Leaders have created a culture in which high standards of behaviour are expected and pupils are encouraged to succeed.'
