Lower School (Years 7 & 8)
Year 7 is the main entry point into Wellington School and pupils join us from local Primary and Prep Schools as well as our own Prep School.
Pupils come into the Lower School, which spans Years 7 and 8 and has a dedicated Head of Section.
Recently we have re-organised the house structure so all houses are co-educational and run throughout the School from Year 7 to the Sixth Form.
Various competitions will take place throughout the school year which will involve either the whole House or a select group. Not all House activities are ’sport’ based and all House members will get involved in fund-raising and other engaging group activities.
Older students will mentor the younger ones and welcome them into the School and their House.
There is also a Head of Year for all year groups from 7-13 who will closely monitor day-to-day progress and be an essential point of contact.
The tutors play a crucial role in overseeing pastoral care and academic progress - if you have any problems then he/she is the first person you should talk to. You will have regular sessions with your tutors and your house each week.
here is a wealth of pastoral support with a team of tutors, so pupils will be in a small tutor group, with a designated tutor who will meet with them daily and supervise, guide and mentor them throughout the year.
