This is currently one of the most exciting times for the school in recent years. September 2017 marked the launch of an energising partnership between Wellfield and Endeavour Learning Trust. May 2018 brought with it a visit from Ofsted that vindicated the work we have all been doing at Wellfield and praised the progress we have made in that time. As Executive Head at Wellfield, Tarleton Academy and Burscough Priory Academy, and a designated National Leader of Education, I am thrilled with the partnership between our family of schools and our continued journey towards excellence for the young people in this community.

This partnership has grown from strength to strength in such a short space of time. Building on the many positives already in school, we continue to work on ensuring that the best from this family is clearly evident, with a number of key staff and central policies being employed across the partnership. We are delighted about the rapid and sustained development taking place here at Wellfield, formally recognised by the Ofsted report of May 2018, using words and phrases such as ‘transformed’ and ‘upward trajectory’ in acknowledging our progress. We are privileged to have a core of fabulous staff and students; thirsting for the school wide success and high levels of achievement a community such as Wellfield deserves.

Mrs Lesley Gwinnett
Executive Head – Wellfield Academy


Wellfield Academy is a growing and thriving school. At our school your child will experience inspirational and challenging teaching and learning, outstanding pastoral care and a genuine belief that every child can succeed. Our overriding priority is to get to know each of our children for their own special uniqueness. Building and maintaining strong relationships with our parents is essential to this and we also take our role at the heart of the Leyland community seriously. We are proud of our significant improvement over recent years and we will continue to provide the very best for each and every one of our students.

 Wellfield Academy is a school with a nurturing environment which is dedicated to developing happy, respectful and independent children. We are extremely passionate about ensuring the successful development of each individual child. Our children behave really well and they thrive in our warm, welcoming yet ambitious environment.

 One of our many strengths is our community spirit and family feel; our children are supported by key staff, as well as being challenged to be the best they can be. Getting the right balance between academic and pastoral support is vital to us. At Wellfield, we believe that every child should be treated as we would want our own children to be. As a result, our children feel safe and valued in an environment where we find the right balance between encouragement and support and stretch and challenge.

 We are delighted to welcome you and your child to our Wellfield family.

Mr Jamie Lewis
Head of School – Wellfield Academy
