Head Teacher's Welcome

At Wellfield School, we take pride in our motto: “We GO the Extra Mile.” This guiding principle is at the heart of everything we do, driving our commitment to high achievement and success for all our students. 

Our Vision 

Wellfield School is more than just a place of academic learning; it is an environment where educational excellence meets a dedication to the holistic development of each student. We strive to create a caring and supportive learning atmosphere that nurtures not only academic growth but also the cultural, social, and emotional development of every child. Our work aims to stabilise and strengthen our community, making Wellfield School an exciting centre for learning for the local area and beyond. 

Our Purpose  

The 3 Cs of Wellfield School underpin all our operations, ensuring that every member of our community understands our purpose and the motivations behind our actions: 

Clarity: We are crystal clear about our purpose and priorities to ensure that Wellfield School remains a first-choice school. 

Consistency: Our overriding priority is outstanding teaching and learning with high aspirations for all. We recognise that students thrive in an atmosphere of structured support, where challenge, encouragement, and recognition are integral to our house style. 

Communication: We work in partnership with staff, governors, parents, local businesses, and the wider community. As a thinking environment, we encourage students to think for themselves and turn their ideas into action. 

At Wellfield School, we are dedicated to going the extra mile to ensure that each student receives the best possible education and support. We invite you to explore our website and learn more about the dynamic and nurturing environment we provide. Welcome to Wellfield School, where excellence is a journey we undertake together.
