What the school says...
Wellington School enjoys a warm, friendly, family atmosphere and prides itself on realising the full potential of every child in the school. There is a highly effective guidance system for pupils of all ages, with a comprehensive careers programme including work experience in the senior school.
In addition to the excellent academic record, the school offers a very wide range of extracurricular activities. There are many tours and trips including regular pupil exchanges overseas, and the school was given the British Council International Schools Award in 2010. Music, Art and Drama are particular strengths, with 75% of pupils learning a musical instrument and participating in choirs, bands and orchestras. Each year performances include nursery, infant and junior shows plus a senior musical, and the annual Art Exhibition showcases over 800 works. Sporting tradition is supported by the extensive facilities at Doonside including rugby and hockey pitches, cricket squares, Astroturf pitch and pavilion.
Wellington has an impressive record in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award and community service.
A new Outdoor Nursery was opened at Doonside in 2011. ...Read more
