Discover how we Make a Difference

Welcome to Wellspring

Our success so far has been founded on the principle of professional freedom enhanced by rigorous Quality Assurance and support systems provided by the trust. I take enormous pride in the fact that each of our Academies has its own unique identity and way of being.

What unites Wellspring Academies is our accord on a broad set of principles. We believe in respect, in valuing people, in an inclusive and ethical approach and in continually striving to become even better. we are convinced that all of these elements are essential to providing the very best that we can for our young people.

I am very privileged to hold the position I do in this exceptional organisation and delight in the fact that every success we experience is shared success. So many people contribute to our effectiveness. Teamwork powers us.

Mark Wilson – Wellspring Chief Executive.
