Working with us: ‘Wilmington Academy is an exceptional school providing a world-class education for its pupils and sixth formers.’ OfSTED May 2023

The Academy is very successful, rated by OfSTED as Outstanding in all areas, where students from a wide variety of backgrounds and starting points can flourish and succeed.

Subject teams work closely together to share resources and ideas to achieve the very best outcomes for our students. We support the Trust model of small schools within a school, so that no student is left behind. Vertical tutor groups, an excellent pastoral programme underpinned by a strong moral purpose, helps students to develop into responsible, well-educated young adults who are ready to take their next steps in life. A large proportion of our students go on to University and high level apprenticeships.

We aim for excellence in everything we do and have received recognition at regional and national level for our work. We are forward thinking and outward facing, constantly striving to advance and improve. We are very supportive and offer excellent training and development opportunities for staff at the various stages of their careers.
