Welcome from the Head Teacher

Welling School, located in the Borough of Bexley, is an 11-18 mixed Academy, part of the TKAT family of schools.

Education can transform people’s lives and at Welling School I am absolutely determined that the students who attend our school will be given the very best opportunities to excel. Our new vision is to educate outward-looking learners who will thrive in their own lives and contribute to making the world a better place.

This means that we firmly believe that the purpose of education is twofold. We want all our learners to achieve academic success and have access to a varied co-curricular syllabus in order for them to complete their educational journey. Students can only achieve this if they feel happy and are provided with a caring environment in which the talents of different individuals are respected and encouraged to flourish. Our educational philosophy is focused around the values we want all our students to acquire before taking their place in the adult world. This is why we strive for:

  • Students who are ambitious
  • Students who are kind
  • Students who are active

In summary, an education is so much more than just good examination results. We aim to support and inspire all our learners, irrespective of ability, to be the best they can be in every single way. Learners at Welling School also benefit from outstanding facilities. In 2005 the school was rebuilt and the school continues to make improvements. This summer the practical food rooms were renovated. Our other excellent facilities include: specialist classrooms; sports hall; all-weather sports pitch; dance studio, drama studios, Apple Mac computer rooms, recording studio, art gallery, library and a designated 6th Form Centre.

I fully appreciate and understand that choosing the right school for your son or daughter is one of the most important decisions you will make but be assured that staff at Welling strive to provide an encompassing holistic approach to education.

I look forward to working with all Parents/Carers and meeting many of you at future school events.

With very best wishes.

Yours faithfully

Mr R Pett
