Please note that from 1st July there will be no vehicular access whatsoever at the front of the Academy due to the delivery of steel frames and the pouring of the concrete slab. There will be an extension to the existing temporary access to ensure that parents and visitors are safe when entering the site.
This will continue until the end of term.
Please note that our temporary phone number is still 01474 700779.
Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you in advance for your co-operation.
The Academy consists of two small schools, Apollo and Minerva, each with its own Principal, three Assistant Principals and three Student Services Managers. We believe that these smaller schools within the Academy develop deeper relationships and lay stronger foundations for learning, which underpin outstanding achievement.
It is amazing that the Scotts Miracle Grow school garden won FOUR Silver Gilt Medals – our best yet. Wilmington Academy was very instrumental in producing props for the 1970s garden.
Our students were competing with huge internationally renowned gardeners and nurseries that spend thousands of pounds to build and grow their displays, so we can all be justly proud of our achievements.
The pupils that were most fortunate to attend the show this year, were able to rub shoulders with a few celebrities who graced our stand with their presence. Allan Titchmarsh and Joe Swift.
Last year two pupils represents the school at the school but this year we had seven students representing over a three days.

On April 18th, a team of students and staff travelled to wonderful and historic Ypres, Belgium and embarked on an educational expedition to learn about Britain’s contributions to the Great War. We visited interactive museums, cemeteries and memorials in the hopes of widening our scope of knowledge of the countless brave souls that sacrificed so much so we can enjoy our current freedoms and way of life today. Though the gusty winds made for a challenging day, the group persevered and kept up their pursuit to see, do and learn more. It ended on a light note in Ypres’ town centre where the group enjoyed the sunshine, chocolates and waffles that Belgium has gained such a high reknown for. It was an exceptionally long day, but the energy, determination and wonder of a new place made for an inspiring visit.
