bringing out the best in boys

Message From the Principal

Welcome to Wellacre

It is a great honour and privilege to lead Wellacre as the new Principal.  Although new to headship, I know Wellacre and its community very well having enjoyed a twenty year career here, most recently as Senior Vice Principal, before gaining invaluable experience in another senior leadership team as Vice Principal prior to my appointment.

I am returning to a ‘GOOD' school with outstanding strengths. The dedication to high standards and excellence means that every student who passes through our care, is given the best opportunity to achieve to their full potential.  

Many parents choose Wellacre in Year 7 as an acknowledgement that boys' outcomes in this all boys’ school environment are better than those for boys in co-educational settings.

At Wellacre, we tailor our resources, design our curriculum and develop our pastoral systems, with the clear aim of 'bringing out the best in boys'.

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.

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

Our tradition based, standards driven approach is underpinned by our mission for Wellacre. 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. Based on this vision, we truly believe that, at Wellacre, we do bring out the best in boys.

Mrs J Sharrock, Principal
