The Wellington Academy opened in 2009 to serve Tidworth, Ludgershall, and the surrounding area: an area with a significant military presence.

What we offer:

• The opportunity of working within a supportive, friendly, and well-run school.

• The Trusts commitment to staff wellbeing including generous calendar dates and INSET days.

• A strong commitment to your professional development and career management.
