Forces Children

MOD & HM Forces Education

Forces families pay only 10% of the school fees plus CEA.
Wellington School is within easy reach of the major forces bases across the South West with excellent road transport links, a train station only 10 minutes drive away, Bristol and Exeter airports within 40 minutes and Heathrow two hours drive. These accessible links making Welligton the perfect choice for families based both in the UK and overseas.


Wellington has a long and successful history of working with Forces’ families. We are very proud of our boarding community and currently have a number of Service children attending the School who benefit from the stable, healthy, challenging, fun and friendly environment provided by our Houses.
Forces’ families have enough to contend with today without worrying about the continuity of their child’s education. With a full weekend programme, Saturday activities and planned excursions, there is plenty of opportunity to keep children occupied and busy.  It is also reassuring to know that during those times when parents might be on the front-line, Wellington has former Forces’ staff on board who know exactly what an anxious time it can be for the whole family. Wellington provides reassurance, care and support for the whole family and these values are embedded as part of everyday life at the School. We also run a full CCF programme and a Corps of Drums, so there can be some family continuation if desired.
Wellington supports the Continuity of Education Allowance with a very generous Forces’ Bursary, with parents paying only 10% of the school fees plus the Continuity of Education Allowance. 
Due to our reputation for quality, value for money and most importantly, what we do for each and every child to ensure their experience here is happy and special, Wellington has been the school of choice for many Forces parents. So if you are eligible for the CEA Allowance, whatever your circumstances, you can be sure that your child will be very well looked after at Wellington School.
