Wellesley House aims to open up a world of possibilities for each child. Renowned for academic excellence, Wellesley has particular success helping its pupils to win scholarship places.

Special Education Needs
We have a fully qualified SENCo who is a full time member of staff and who has 30 years experience of working with a wide range of Special Needs. We have a specialist SEN room fully equipped with the latest computer technology and teaching resources. The SENCo works closely with all members of staff to ensure full access to the curriculum for each child in the school. SEN teaching takes place during the normal school day and can take the form of one to one withdrawal, small group teaching or in-class support. Wellesley is able to make provision for a range of moderate learning difficulties and can offer both academic and pastoral support. For a full account of our SEN policy, please contact the School. We will be only too willing to discuss Special Needs with you.
