Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
Children begin their Wellington experience with the English Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. Children learn through a carefully-designed, play-based approach which takes account of the full range of individual differences. The curriculum is delivered through the seven areas below and every child is constantly monitored and tracked to ensure appropriate and consistent development.
- Communication and Language
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Physical Development
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2)
In Years 1 and 2, we follow the National Curriculum for England, enhanced and developed to include opportunities for cross-curricular work as well as specific areas relevant to our international context, such as daily Thai lessons and an introduction to Mandarin.
Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6)
The Prep School’s curricular foundation is the English National Curriculum, enhanced as necessary to match our context. We are committed to nurturing and developing the whole child, and the curriculum reflects this: right from the youngest age, pupils at Wellington are encouraged to be Inclusive, Intellectual, Independent, Individual and Inspired, and to exemplify the five College Values (Courage, Integrity, Kindness, Respect, Responsibility), whether inside or outside class.
An extensive co-curricular enrichment programme of sports and other activities is intertwined with classroom-based content to enrich and broaden the education we provide. On top of this, high-quality pastoral provision is central to the Wellington philosophy, with a thriving House system and a purposeful Wellbeing programme featuring strongly in the daily life of the School.
