Welcome to Wilmington Academy.

We have created a very successful academy where students from a wide variety of backgrounds and starting points can flourish and succeed.  Our curriculum is carefully designed to meet the needs and aspirations of all our young people and we have an extensive programme of enrichment and support that provides extra opportunities for personal development and growth.

In September 2017 we became an International Baccalaureate World School and currently offer the IB Career-related Programme in key stage 5 and the IB Middle Years Programme in key stage 3, so that we can provide our students with a truly world class education.

Academic excellence, hard work and good manners are expected of all our students.  International-mindedness, cultural understanding and an appreciation of the benefits diversity can bring are at the heart of what we believe.

We work closely with Leigh Academies Trust, external partners and organisations to ensure we provide the educational experience our students need to make their way in an increasingly complex and ever changing world.
