Pastoral care


Outstanding pastoral care is fundamental to a quality education, and our staff are committed to ensuring the highest levels of support for your child. Guided by our five core values of kindness, courage, integrity, responsibility and respect, we foster personal and emotional development as well as academic ambition. Our House system provides pupils with a sense of solidarity along with practical support and guidance. Pupils are encouraged to express themselves and cultivate mindfulness as they learn from life's challenges. Our houses also provide the key line of communication between the College, pupils and parents. 


House system


Each pupil’s house will be their home throughout their time at Wellington. Here, they will forge lasting friendships and celebrate their achievements together. Pupils develop a sense of pride in 'their house' and their fellow housemates. We bolster this pride through regular inter-house competitions in which pupils get to showcase their academic, artistic and sporting abilities. 
The house environment also gives our pupils opportunities to take the lead and drive others forward through service, coaching or mentoring their peers, captaining a team or leading a production.


Each house is overseen by a housemaster (HM) and a team of tutors who are dedicated to supporting and guiding each child throughout their time at Wellington as they negotiate relationships, expectations and social challenges they face daily.
