Upper School (Years 9,10 & 11)
Year 9 is a logical entry point into Wellington School and we have many pupils joining us at that time. These typically come from Prep Schools or some of the local Middle Schools, which go up to the end of Year 8. They are joined by our own Year 8 pupils to make the exciting transition into the Upper School (which spans Year 9-11).
Recently, we have completely re-organised the house structure so all houses are co-educational and run throughout the School from Year 7 to the Sixth Form.
The Upper School has its own dedicated Head of Section.
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.
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.
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.
“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.”
