bringing out the best in boys

Message From the Principal

Welcome to Wellacre

It is a great honour and privilege to lead the Wellacre community as Principal.  

Wellacre is a safe, happy and thriving school with outstanding strengths. Our vision is simple: we all work together to instill a strong sense of belonging for all at Wellacre. This enables every student to succeed and become active members of the local and global community as they move into adulthood. We aim to give all our students an education which will INSPIRE them to learn, empower them to ACHIEVE their full potential and enable them to ENJOY their time at school. 

Our priorities are the right ones for our students and we pursue them relentlessly: 

  • We invest in a thriving school environment which is safe, welcoming and inclusive.

  • We provide excellence in education, across a broad and balanced curriculum, and the chance for every student to fulfil their potential, whatever their background or need. 

  • We have strong inclusive practices at the heart of everything we do and promote wellbeing, fairness and equity for all. 

  • We provide the right challenge and support at the right time from highly skilled staff, to enable everyone at Wellacre to be successful. 

  • We create confident, knowledgeable and skillful students who tell us they ‘feel included’ and have a strong sense of identity. 

To enhance the efforts undertaken by our staff in continuing to transform student learning, wellbeing and self esteem, all students at Wellacre wear a smart uniform, emblazoned with the school crest which represents our values of honesty, pride, respect, aspiration and resilience. 

We provide excellence in teaching and personalised pastoral care and, of course, our character is unique and distinct; being the only single sex school in Trafford which is open to boys of all abilities. 

We welcome visitors to Wellacre. If you would like to find out more about what makes Wellacre such a special place to learn and work, please contact us at admin(at)
