Appointment of New Head
We are delighted to be able to announce that, after a rigorous selection process, Mrs Helen Donnelly has been appointed as Head of Wellington Primary Academy from September 2017. Mrs Donnelly is currently Head of Hampshire Collegiate Prep School which is part of United Learning Trust. She has had a career working in both state and independent schools and was herself a child from a military family, giving her a unique set of skills and experiences for the post. We are very pleased that she has agreed to join our group of schools. There will be an opportunity for parents/carers to meet Mrs Donnelly later in the year.
Ms Phillip will continue as Head of Wellington Primary until the end of September, when she will return to the secondary full time, and Dr Milner will continue to be at the school every week. We have been greatly impressed with the changes that have been introduced since the beginning of the academic year in all areas of the academy’s life – particularly in standards of work and behaviour. Both of us would like to congratulate Ms Phillip and all the staff at the academy for what they have achieved so far this year and we are looking forward to a successful 2017.
Dr M Milner
Mr N Lunnon
Chair of Local Governing Body
