Lower School

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. There are two girls’ and two boys’ day houses, each of which has its own identity, loyal membership and competitive spirit. The girls and boys share an enormous houseroom where they can relax, socialise and study. Mixed houserooms encourage interaction and friendship.

There are many inter-house contests, including singing and sporting activities and a hotly contested end of year cup – the Pearce Cup - for the house with the most cumulative points throughout the year.

There is a wealth of pastoral support and each house has a team of tutors, so pupils will be in a small tutor group of 10, with a designated tutor who will meet with them daily and supervise, guide and mentor them throughout the year.

"Friendly, purposeful and busy, it is a solid, well-managed school, giving its pupils a sound education and masses of high points in developmental experience. Its flexible and approachable style means happy pupils and happy parents." The Good Schools Guide
