'Candid' academy talks
10:00am Tuesday 8th October 2013 in News
TIDWORTH councillor Mark Connolly told town councillors that he has held a meeting with Anthony Seldon, the master of Wellington College, to discuss the situation at Wellington Academy following the departure of principal Andy Schofield.
Cllr Connolly, who represents Tidworth at County Hall, said: “It was a candid meeting.
“We were heartened by the things we heard about discipline which may have been a bit lacking in recent times.
“There are not going to be quick changes at the top – Mike Milner will continue in post until a new principal is appointed.”
He added that the governors may take some time to make the right choice.
Plans for the academy to expand have also emerged, with the a new sixth form block open on the nearby Castledown Business Park – freeing up around 300 additional places in the main academy building.
Meanwhile in Tidworth work on a new primary school is expected to begin in November on the North East Quadrant housing.
