where students can flourish and succeed

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.

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.

Our Mission

Wilmington Academy aims to be an outstanding, inclusive learning community where everyone feels safe and valued.

We aim to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect, recognising that other people with their differences can also be right.

Wilmington Academy comprises three colleges, Minerva, Apollo and Jupiter designed around community, relationships, respect and high aspirations. Whilst the vision and values are the same, each college has its own leadership, student services team and administration. The human scale, modular culture and personalised approach to learning mean that no student gets left behind. We are a reflective, outward-facing community constantly reviewing our successes and adapting to bring about improvements.

Wilmington Academy is part of Leigh Academies Trust. We believe in the power of the Trust small schools within a school and vertical tutoring models to transform lives and shape communities. We also believe that collaboration within the Trust and beyond, at national and international level, will help us to achieve the best possible outcomes for our students.
