Welcome to Wellesley House

Welcome to Wellesley.  I hope you enjoy our new website and that it will give you a sense of the energy and vibrancy of the life of our unique and wonderful prep school by the sea.

You will see from the breadth of the site that we value a variety of activities and provide an outstanding range of opportunities for all. Success develops naturally in pupils who are happy, well-motivated and given the encouragement to push themselves. We want Welleslians to be prepared to take a few risks along the way, knowing they will always be supported.

Situated in the seaside town of Broadstairs in East Kent, it means we are able to make the most of all that life at the coast provides and the beach and surrounding areas become an extension of both the classroom and playground. It truly does provide a unique experience for the children in our care.
