Wellacre Academy is a place of teaching and learning excellence, where continuous professional development is prioritised. We aim to improve teaching and learning by using the latest technologies and evidence informed or based research strategies. All staff have access to a coach to facilitate the process. Miss Partridge leads on Teaching & Learning across the academy. Please contact her for external CPD requests and follow @wellacreTL to keep up to date. Mrs Bailey leads on the development of our Support Staff. Please contact her on for more information.




Sharing best practice with the Schools Partnership Programme, working with St Ambrose, Lostock, Altrincham Girls Grammar and Sale High School.





Each member of staff has access to the best possible learning strategies via the Teacher Development Trust. We were awarded the Gold Award for our excellent CPD provision in October 2019.

Founded by teachers in 2012, the Teacher Development Trust (TDT) is the national charity for effective professional development in schools and colleges. With support from CUREE, TES Global and Durham University, they have led the way in commissioning and publishing guidance around effective CPD, including the Developing Great Teaching report in 2015, which underpinned the development of the Department of Education (England)’s and the Standard for Teachers’ Professional Development in 2016. The development of this Standard was led by an Expert group Chaired by the CEO, David Weston.

Life Long Learning

We empower all staff to undertake action research with full autonomy and guidance. This academic year we have launched the Walk Thru CPD by Tom Sherrington, to support our development of Rosenshine’s Principals of Direct Instruction.
