The Wellington Academy
About the school
The Wellington Academy is celebrating its eleventh birthday. Throughout these years we have remained true to our core values, providing an inclusive and happy education for all students. This year the Academy was oversubscribed in Year 7 and we are delighted to welcome all our new students from the local community and those who have joined us due to army rebasing.
As part of the Royal Wootton Bassett Academy Trust family of schools, we can offer opportunities that are quite unique in a state school. There is something for every student to participate in; be it the Combined Cadet Force; Wheeler programme; Global Leadership China project; The Talent Tap and China Internship, as well as having a host of other opportunities to succeed both at school or beyond. This year a large group of our students have had the opportunity to serve internships in top London companies and also work in China and Thailand at our sister schools for a year.
Our curriculum is focused on ensuring every student is equipped to leave school ready to achieve their dreams and fulfil their goals. In addition to English, Maths and Science we continue to reintroduce more of the creative subjects. We know the impact these can have on building confidence and an enjoyment of school. We want students to have the chance to exhibit their talents, be it in drama, dance, music or sport. The Academy’s stunning theatre, dance studio, music practice rooms and sporting facilities are second to none and we look forward to sharing these talents with you as parents/carers through performances at school.
The Wellington Academy sits at the heart of the community. It is here to serve and we work closely with charities and our local primary schools. We provide support in the delivery of subjects such as French and run sports days. We value our close ties with other organisations; it is likely that your child will already know us well! Our links with the army are very strong; we welcome the diversity and cultural variety its presence gives to the school. Children who have recently moved from other parts of the country, returned from abroad and those who have joined our Boarding House, offer an insight into an international world with all its unlimited potential.
