We have worked closely with the Ministry of Defence to ensure there are sufficient numbers of school places available. We have built new schools and extended current provision so all children relocating from Germany and other parts of the United Kingdom can start at a school with high quality, fit for purpose facilities and a high standard of education.

For those with younger children, early years provision is being provided including childcare spaces to meet the needs of the Army Basing Programme.

* Wellington Eagles Primary will open in September 2019, initially operating out of a modern, recently renovated 12-classroom block at the Wellington Academy Secondary School – where it has its own self-contained playground and grassland area. A purpose built new primary school building is being constructed, and whilst construction started last year, the build time has been extended predominantly as a result of contractor insolvency; a new contractor has now been appointed and work has restarted.
