Wellfield School




 As Acting Head of Wellfield School it is my pleasure to welcome you. The information displayed here is designed to give you a flavour of our vibrant and successful school.

We are very proud of our school and what we achieve for the young people who attend.

Our success is due to our high expectations, a commitment to constantly improving achievement for our students and our belief that all students are entitled to the best education possible.

We offer:

· A first choice school.

· A happy, caring learning environment.

· An exciting centre for learning for our community.

Wellfield School is characterised by its high achievement and success for all.

We never lose sight of the overriding priority of putting the teaching and learning of students first. We have high aspirations for what students can achieve.

We place an unrelenting emphasis on what happens in lessons because it is our high standards of teaching and learning that inspire and encourage our students to aim high.

Our world is rapidly evolving and we know that our work can do much to stabilise and strengthen the community. We are a force for good. We represent reliability, morality, knowledge, inspiration and access to the wider world.

We know that students thrive in an atmosphere of structured support and that they need a combination of certainty, recognition and stimulation as such we communicate high expectations to our students in all aspects of their conduct.

We are a state-of-the-art community school. Good or better teaching and learning along with updated ICT and e-learning facilities enhance our learning environment. We work in partnership with staff, governors, parents, local businesses and the community because we recognise the benefits that these partnerships bring to our students.
