The School is very proud of the teachers at Wellington School. Teachers are recruited first and foremost on their abilities in the classroom, a genuine enthusiasm for and knowledge of their subject and a total commitment to encouraging young people to flourish.

All have a degree in the subject they are teaching, or one that is closely related such as Engineering for a Physics teacher. The life of a boarding and day school is a busy one with a vast array of activities and staff are expected to play a full part being at tutor, taking teams or running clubs and trips. It means they know their pupils well and in turn they are respected for their commitment. The quality of the teachers and the strong working relationship between staff and pupils is what makes Wellington special and successful.
