Welcome from the Headteacher

We hope you find our website useful in helping you find out about our school and what we do. It is full of information for our whole school community.

Wellington is a successful, happy and forward-thinking school. We pride ourselves on our rich and varied curriculum, and the wider opportunities our children have. They tell us they love their learning and enjoy coming to school.

In recent years we've had lots of building work going on as we've grown to a two-form entry school. Our learning environments are bright and well-cared for, with facilities which support all our children.

Please explore the website to find out a little more about us.

Big Draw

Thank you to all our EYFS families who joined us for our 'Big Draw' workshop with Ms O'Dowd. The beautiful up-cycled bugs produced by Nursery and Reception were made from rescued laminate, scraps of card and plastic bottle tops!

The event was a great success, with parents and children proudly showing off their work and talking about their learning and enjoyment. A huge thanks to Mrs Bennett, Mrs Di Piazza and the KS2 Student Arts Ambassadors for supporting this event.

We look forward to seeing you next time!​​​
