Every child joins a Wellington Prep School 'House' on joining the School:
Apollo - Yellow
Galileo - Red
Pioneer - Blue
Viking - Green
This house structure provides opportunities for leadership, competition, creativity and, most importantly, friendship. The vertical structure of the House system means that children of all ages integrate with each other and share their experiences. All houses are mixed, so girls and boys work together at all times. Every staff member, teaching and support is a member of a House, apart from Mrs Richardson who supports them all.
Inter-house competitions are wide and varied, from the traditional Sports Day to bridge building and pancake races.
