As a school, Wellingborough places academic achievement at the heart of our curriculum, creating a challenging education which promotes self-awareness, active participation and responsibility. The School values altruism and community, as is reflected in our commitment to charity and to building links with the world outside of the school gates. Our aim is to create an environment in which pupils can develop to their full potential and thrive as individuals.
The School creates a happy, supportive atmosphere, derived from people knowing each other well and a lack of anonymity. My fondest memories are of my years at Wellingborough School. I made my closest friends there and kept in touch with them throughout university and into the world of work. Every day at School is exciting and fun.

On Wednesday 21st March Science welcomed a representative from EDF in conjunction with Hinkley Point C to run a work shop with year 9.

Students competed to build the most efficient wind turbine, as well as learning about the production of electricity, and the wealth of careers available to them within the STEM industry. 8pm in time for a tasty dinner and fitting of ski equipment.
Everyone then collapsed into bed for a good night’s sleep. The first day out on the slopes was brilliant. The temperature varied between minus 8 and minus 1, but the sun was shining and the slopes weren’t that busy. As a result all the non-skiers did superbly well and were working their way down blue runs, and taking chair lifts up again, by the end of the day.

This tied in with what we had been learning about materials in our science lessons. We also tested how strong the materials were by standing on them. They day was fantastic and it was great to be able to use the learning we had done in school to help us with the workshop activities.
