About Us

Wellington Eagles Primary Academy 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, from September 2019 – Wellington Eagles Primary Academy and Eagles Nest Nursery.

Wellington Eagles  is a brand new school, currently under construction and due to open its doors to pupil in September 2019 as part of the Wellington College Academy Trust, a multi-academy trust sponsored by Wellington College (a leading independent school)

The new school will be located 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.

Due to unforseen ground contamination, the building has been slightly delayed and will open in 2020. Fortunately our site is just across the road from The Wellington Academy and they have an unoccupied building available for to temporarily house Eagles. The building, known as 'Seldon' has 12 classrooms and is completely self-contained, a few modifications over the summer holidays will make it the perfect base for Wellington Eagles. Seldon has its own grassland area which will be fenced off as a private play area for the children. The school day will be slightly adjusted, starting at 9am and finishing at 3.30pm. This means the children will arrive and leave the school at different times to the secondary school, lunchtimes will also be adjusted. 

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.
