Meet Our Staff

Barn Owls - Reception

Mrs Mupesa

I am a food enthusiast (indeed, sampling foods is one of my talents!) who finds much joy making connections with people from all walks of life. I have worked in schools for 10 years, 5 of which were in SCE schools in Germany. The majority of my teaching experience has been in Early Years and during the course of my career, I have drawn from the experience of bringing up my own three children who are now teenagers! I am married to an Arsenal FC supporter. I look forward to sharing our successes (hopefully over a bite or two) at WEPA.

Kestrels - Year One

Miss Kenyon

Miss Kenyon. Originally from Liverpool, I trained to teach with the North West SHARES SCITT Primary and Early Years program in 2014. I started my teaching career in 2015 in Sennelager, Germany where I have taught for four years across both Year One and Year Three. This year, I am really looking forward to moving to Tidworth and having the opportunity to forge strong links with our Academy Trust Schools, families and the wider Wellington School community. In my spare time I like to stay active and explore new places, so am excited to be close to the South Coast where I hope to try some more watersports! I also enjoy going to the gym, travelling, walking, camping and going to festivals.

Robins - Year Two

Miss Murphy

Hello, my name is Miss Murphy and I am extremely excited to be teaching at Wellington Eagles Primary Academy. I completed my Primary Education degree at the University of Winchester in 2012. I trained in schools across Hampshire and Wiltshire and secured my first teaching post in a rural infant school, teaching in Reception. I joined Wellington Primary Academy in January 2015 as a Year 1 Class Teacher and then became Key Stage One Phase Leader in December 2016. I have thoroughly enjoy teaching at WPA and I am excited to move over to Eagles where I can bring my teaching and leadership skills to Key Stage One. I have a very keen interest in phonics and am passionate about the teaching of reading. I will be leading across both Key Stage One primary teams. This will enable both schools to work closely together and I am very excited about the new opportunities that this will bring for our children. In my spare time, I enjoy tending to my garden and finding new countryside or coastal paths to walk. I really enjoy spending time with my friends, family and cat called Doris!

Hawks - Year Three

Mr Davies

I trained as a teacher at MarJon in Plymouth and went to Germany in 2012 to do a teaching placement for 10 weeks. I loved it so much that I moved to Germany after I had graduated to start my first teaching job at Shackleton School (in Fallingbostel), where I taught in Year 1 for two years before moving into year 3/4 for a year. I moved to William Wordsworth School (now Attenborough School) in Sennelager when Hohne Garrison closed down in 2015, and loved loved working in year 3 and year 4 until I made the decision to move back to the UK this year. Outside of school, I like to read and listen to music. I also love spending time outdoors and trying new things (bungee jumping, skydiving…!) - I used my time in Germany to travel and explore lots of exciting places across Europe! After working in two schools which have closed down, I am really excited to help open a new school – it will make a nice change! I am also looking forward to being able to spend more time with family and friends in the UK as this is something I have really missed while I have been in Germany. I’m really looking forward to the future at the Wellington Academy and working alongside some fantastic people.

Ospreys - Year Four

Miss Tuff

Hi, my name is Miss Tuff. I trained to become a teacher at Exeter University, working in schools across Devon whilst completing my PGCE. I trained in Primary education with a specialism in Art. With a keen interest in Art I look forward to leading this subject across WPA and Eagles Primary. I have also taught in both Year 4 and 5 at a Junior School in Norfolk, before moving back to Wiltshire. Since returning to where I call home, I have been teaching in Year 4 at The Wellington Primary Academy, Tidworth. I have enjoyed my time spent at WPA and look forward to bringing a love of learning to Wellington Eagles Primary. I am excited to be part of the new Wellington Eagles team and sharing our ‘Good to be green’ behaviour management system along with many other elements of WPA. I will also be leading Science, giving ideas and support to teachers and children across the two schools. I have grown up in the countryside and love walking my chocolate Labrador, Raffles. I like spending time in my garden, growing flowers and vegetables - those that haven’t been eaten by my two rabbits Ned and Nora. I like to bake and enjoy cooking. I am very creative and enjoy sketching, painting, sewing and photography.

Kingfishers - Year Five

Mrs Johnson-Motyl

My name is Sarah Johnson-Motyl. I live in Germany and will be moving to Wiltshire with my family in August. I have taught at both middle school and primary and currently have a year 6 class. Prior to living in Germany I was a SENDCO at a large Academy in Devon. My hobbies are horse riding, skiing and cycling as well as curling up with a good book! I love to travel and adore the mountains of Austria and the wild coasts of Cornwall. I am really looking forward to living in Wiltshire and working with our new team of staff pupils and parents.

Year Six

Due to low numbers of applications for Year 6, Wellington Eagles will not open with a Year 6 class and any Year 6 pupils allocated a place at Wellington Eagles will be educated with the Year 6 cohort at Wellington Primary Academy in Tidworth. If you would like to discuss this further, please email the office at WPA on
