Headmaster's Welcome

Wellington’s ethos rests on three principles: outstanding relationships, a love of learning and the pursuit of excellence.

We want children to feel secure and confident, to feel supported and understood, to feel able to turn to those around them for guidance and encouragement. Our relationships are informed by values such as kindness, tolerance, inclusivity and trust. We work together to bring out the best in one another.

As a learning community, we are process oriented; we work through problems, we don’t shy away from challenges, we understand that getting things wrong at first is part of getting them right in the end. We are ambitious in our aspirations, but humble enough to accept that there is always more we can learn.

If our girls and boys feel confident and secure and if they enjoy their learning, then we believe they will rise to the high expectations we have of them. The pursuit of excellence is a mindset rather than a destination and we work tirelessly to support our children to become the very best they can be.

We are a collaborative and purposeful community. Our children are at the heart of everything we do and nothing pleases us more than supporting them in their journey and seeing them enjoy their school days.
