These are some of the cultural reasons to want to work at Wellingborough School, but there are a range of other benefits. The School has recently reviewed its appraisal system so that all staff can benefit from professional development, both internal and external. Staff input into INSET is encouraged, and the School is a member of the East Midlands Group of independent schools, which provides opportunities for collaboration and discussion.
