In the Senior School, which will run from Year 9 to Year 13 (our first Year 9 class will open in September 2020), we will focus keenly on academic achievement, looking always to inspire curiosity, creativity and compassion as we do so. We are here to enrich our pupils’ lives with enjoyment and deep understanding of our global scientific, linguistic and cultural heritage. In doing this, we empower them with the knowledge, skills and independence of mind that will make them responsible – and outstanding – leaders of the future.In Years 10 and 11, students will work towards external IGCSE examinations in various subjects. Some, such as English, Mathematics and the Sciences, are core subjects; a broad range of others are optional.
In the Sixth Form (Years 12 and 13) we will offer either the globally-recognised International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP), or the British A-levels. The undoubted quality of both qualifications stands out across the world and either will give students access to the best English-speaking universities anywhere.
Every member of Wellington College has high expectations – of ourselves and of others; we insist that working hard, and intelligently, must always be the basis of success. We believe strongly that learning is most rewarding in a community that is lively, co-operative, curious and tolerant.
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.
