Welcome to our community
Welcome to the Wellington Academy
We are so pleased you have chosen our school for your child.
With a high proportion of our pupils coming from service families, we offer help and support to your child and your family. This might be by providing information prior to the move, keeping in touch throughout the transition, answering any questions you may have or assisting with a cost of uniform if required.
It’s important to let us know of the service connection, so we can access the funding to be able to provide this support.
You can contact any of the staff listed under Key Contacts, with any questions you might have.
Please see some useful practical links below to get you started.
Our quick start guide:
How will my child get to school? (School/Public transport, safe walking and cycle routes from the main military housing areas.)
We offer a subsidised mini bus for Year 7 from Tidworth, Bulford, Durrington and Upavon. There are buses from Perham Down, Tidworth and Ludgershall which stop outside the Academy. If you are eligible for transport you will be sent a bus pass application form by County Hall when you are offered your place.
