What people say about us...

At Wellington School we believe it is important to listen to all the people involved in making the school such a special place. We value the comments and feedback from the children, parents, governors, alumni and our local community.

Here is a selection of some of the things people have said about us…

The facilities and resources at the school are really impressive, but what impressed us the most was the positive feel and the incredible enthusiasm for learning that the school has.

The Wellington Family are simply the best and I am in awe of everything that you have all done to get this show back on the road.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Just wanted to let you know that our son is absolutely loving school. He says he feels like he’s won the lottery getting into Wellington.

We continue to be incredibly impressed with Wellington’s remote learning provision as well as all the other events that are being organised.  It was brilliant to watch students taking part in the cookery lesson yesterday lunchtime run by a sixth form student.  And continued progress with D of E, EPQs, online assemblies, concerts, the Lockdown Book as well as the Great Wellington Project are fabulous!

I personally think that I owe a lot of my life education and opportunity in life to Wellington (especially Sixth Form).

Wellington manages to avoid the whiff of elitism - the pupils are from a wider range of social backgrounds than might be expected for a fee paying school – which is a plus!

What a school, what a town, what a fantastic part of England!

We were impressed with the long history, beautiful campus and the way students are educated.

She is very happy and settled at school with some lovely and supportive friends.


A Wellington education is a privilege - pupils know they are lucky to have had it and are grounded.


Happy children, happy staff and a friendly “flowing” vibe.


An all-round, down-to-earth, unpretentious offering is greatly valued.
