Our History

Our History

This academic year we are celebrating 20 years of Wellington Prep School.  The School opened in September 1999 in new purpose-built accommodation, providing one of the most modern and stimulating educational environments for young children anywhere in the country. Since then it has expanded further, with a designated “Prep Block” for its older pupils, 'The Hive' a specialist space for art and design and a recently revamped library.  In 2018 we purchased our own Woodland Learning site in the Blackdown Hills, which our younger children use weekly and our older children visit as part of their Outdoor Learning sessions.  We have also developed the curriculum with the introduction of sport and wellbeing for all ages from Nursery upwards, along with strength and conditioning sessions on Saturday morning.  Our music provision which runs through the School from 3 years to 18 years is delivered by music specialist teachers and includes groups which span both Schools.
