" The quality of the boarding experience is excellent and fully supports the ethos of the school that success follows success, whether in or outside the classroom, and occurs naturally in pupils who are happy and motivated. "

School Life

Pastoral Care

The highest levels of pastoral care underpin life at Wellesley, supporting the family-feel nature of the school. Whilst we have a boarding ethos, our day pupils benefit from the extended days and our extensive activities provision and all pupils are fully integrated into our school.

Boarding is naturally at the heart of Wellesley and we offer full, weekly and flexi opportunities for the pupils.

All girl boarders live in "The Orchard" - a separate House within the grounds, surrounded by beautiful fruit trees and the girls have access to their own private gardens, a library, dining room and common room (which also doubles up as a dance studio some evenings!). They are looked after by their own Houseparents (recently described by Tatler as "legends of Wellesley") and The Orchard is a special part of our school where the girls can develop friendships for life in this wonderful environment.

Our junior boy boarders (up to and including Year 6) are looked after in Boddington House which is attached to the main school building under the guidance of Houseparents (the Housemaster is also the Deputy Head). They benefit from their own Common Room and small and cosy dormitories. Our Senior boarders live in the main School building with access to their own Common Rooms under the caring watch of the Headmaster and his wife and their committed team of tutors and matrons.

Parents are extremely happy with the care, help and guidance given to their children.

Strong relationships exist between pupils and staff, and amongst pupils themselves.
