The pupil's tour of Short Wood

"The school has a positive and prominent place at the heart of the local community." 

-Ofsted, 2015


Our school is located in the centre of Wellington, Telford. We have a spacious award winning eco-friendly building that offers a stimulating and safe learning environment. Our warm, friendly and respectful atmosphere supports positive working relationships between adults and children.


We are a culturally diverse school and governors and all staff encourage and respect all cultures and faiths. We work alongside children and encourage them to have aspirations and set high expectations for themselves. We have first class facilities throughout the school with light, airy classrooms and excellent facilities for sports and the arts.


Our school is surrounded by a beautiful green space, we have Forest Schools activities and also use the outdoors for learning all year round. We also have extensive playing fields with provision for football, athletics, rounders, cricket and rugby. The school hall and gymnasium are used for indoor activities and training sessions and with Arthog Outreach based in our Sports Hall we have a climbing wall fitted and a low ropes course.
