About Us

Wellington Eagles  is a brand new school, that opened its doors to pupils in September 2019 and is proud to be part of the ‘Wellington Family’ – an education trust based around Wellington College, which was established in 1859 in memory of the Duke of Wellington. The Trust consists of - Wellington College, The Wellington Academy, Eagle House Prep School, Wellington Primary Academy, The Nest Nursery, Wellington College International Tianjin, Wellington College International Shanghai and in 2020 –  Eagles Nest Nursery.

Due to unforseen ground contamination, the schools own building has been slightly delayed and will open in 2020. Fortunately the site is just across the road from The Wellington Academy where an unoccupied building was available to temporarily house Eagles.

The purpose-built school will be based within the new housing development in Ludgershall, Wiltshire on what used to be the old Salisbury Plain Barracks and vehicle depot both of which have been demolished to make way for 246 family homes and the school. At Wellington Eagles Primary Academy we firmly believe that every child in our care has the right to be truly inspired by an engaging and purposeful curriculum. We have dedicated staff who are passionate about providing our children with enriching and exciting experiences so that they can all achieve success in their learning journey. We actively encourage our children to be enthusiastic, resilient, collaborative and aspirational and believe that this supports them on their path to becoming life-long learners.

We support our children to grow into positive, well rounded citizens and work alongside them to encourage bravery, positivity, respect, kindness and honesty. By instilling these values we give children the chance to shine and be proud of all that they achieve, both academically and personally.

A Wellington education promotes:

  • Excellence through the rigorous learning of key skills within a rich and broad curriculum.
  • Holistic learning by developing the whole child.
  • Innovation in the way that we teach and learn.
  • Collaboration with parents and carers, the Wellington Family, the military community and local primary schools

Our ambition for Wellington Eagles Primary Academy is the same ambition we have for all schools in the Wellington Family: to provide an outstanding education for all its pupils. At Wellington Eagles pupils will learn how to work hard and study well, to be good and do good, setting them up for a future of success and wellbeing whatever they choose to do in their lives.
